Jag vs Cardinals and Stuff to do This Weekend in Jacksonville

A Story By

Something’s in the air this weekend – wait – is it fall?!

We’re so excited to bring in the season that we’ve got a full lineup of festivities fit for the autumnal animal in everyone. Ah, we can taste the pumpkin flavoring now…

Things we’re excited about for the fall season:

🍂 Our hair being less frizzy

🍂 Big sweaters to hide in

🍂 Pumpkin spice everything (yes, we’re basic)

🍂 Seeing that one leaf that falls in Florida

🍂 Photo ops in pumpkin patches

🍂 Drinking out of those huge steins of beer during Oktoberfest (powering through that last warm backwash on the bottom….)

🍂 Walking on the beach when it’s cold and there is nobody there

🍂 Turning off the A/C and opening the windows (getting a JEA bill that is half its previous size)

What are you excited about this season in Jax? Share it on social and tag #stufftodojacksonville because we want to know! We’re going to be at all the fun fall festivities, tracking the best fall flavors from our local businesses and looking cute at all the best pumpkin patches. Hit us up with what you got, Jacksonville!

We’re excited to be chasin’ waterfalls this weekend (even though we were advised against it) — that’s because TLC is going to be playing their hit 1995 album “CrazySexyCool” at the St. Augustine Amphitheater!

TLC’s album is one of the definitive sounds of the decade, with chart toppers, “Creep,” & “Diggin’ on You,” plus many more! And if that’s not enough nostalgia for one night of 90’s glory, get ready to kick it to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, who will be gracing the stage with them!

If you like a little apparition with your aperitif, this pop-up bar is for you!

The event is held at Colonial Musicale, one of the most haunted places in Jacksonville, where you might personally meet the ghoul of the Musicale – beware however – he didn’t die kindly and isn’t too happy about meeting newcomers.
