3:00 P.M. – 6:00 P.M – Jacksonville Beach Seawalk Pavilion
This year’s pep rally will feature both TaxSlayer Gator Bowl participating university marching bands and cheer groups as well as the Parris Island Marine Band. The event is free to the public and is in conjunction with the annual Deck the Chairs event at Jacksonville Beach.
Jacksonville Beach Deck The Chairs is an annual lighted sculptural exhibit using the iconic chairs of The American Red Cross Life Saving Corps. Marking its sixth year in community service, JBDTC gathers community to decorate and display the Beaches lifeguard chairs during the month of December to promote local business, instill public pride, and share cultural diversity through creative expression. Free and open to the public, the light display aims to provide a wholesome and festive downtown during the holidays.
