St. Augustine's Sing Out Loud Music Festival, sponsored this year by the St. Augustine Distillery, is the largest free music festival in Florida. The Festival returns in September 2019 with a roster of 334 national, regional, and local artists performing in live concerts over the twelve days of the event, at multiple venues downtown and at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre (now called The Amp).

Having been born in 1960, naturally I was a lover of all things space. I remember my Boy Scout jacket was covered in Scout, Apollo and Gemini pins and patches.  I remember seeing Apollo 17 from Miami!

We came to Brevard County, with my mom and stepfather in 1973, so it was very exciting to watch the shuttle program begin. It was very exciting to be able to watch shuttle launches virtually out of our backyard. Everybody here knew somebody connected to/or worked for the Kennedy Space Center and NASA.
