The historic reenactment community (through a partnership between the Historic Florida Militia, the City of Saint Augustine, and the St. John’s Cultural Council) will be conducting a “History on the Streets” saunter along St. George Street and the historic area in Saint Augustine. These saunters are always a lot of fun for the public as well as the participants.
Authentically clad historical interpreters will walk around the city in an effort to share the rich and diverse history we so love. Through the use of a “timeline saunter” the historians will speak with visitors and residents alike about Saint Augustine’s history dating back to its founding in 1565. The one-on-one personal contact is fun for the visitors, many of whom know that Saint Augustine is the oldest city but don’t know how we achieved that title.
