Lions Adulting 

The Lions at San Marco Square donned birthday hats for the 21st Birthday Celebration. The landmark fountain was installed 21 years ago. The Venetian inspired square hailed visitors and locals to an afternoon of live music, vendors and free photos by the fountain. Restaurants and shops got in on the party by offering discounts on a picture perfect day. 


San Marco in Jacksonville, Florida is home to some of the area’s best restaurants as well as art galleries, Art Deco buildings, historic mansions, fashionable boutiques and more.
