Celebrate Florida Main Street Day, In Zephyrhills

ZEPHYRHILLS, FL. – Help celebrate Florida Main Street Day, by checking out all downtown Zephyrhills has to offer!

Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee recognizes today, Jan. 18, as this year’s Florida Main Street Day. The purpose of Florida Main Street Day is to raise awareness of the local, statewide, and national Main Street programs and celebrate their accomplishments and achievements.

“I am thrilled to recognize this year’s Florida Main Street Day,” Secretary Lee said, in a news release. “Our Main Streets have proven to be vital in protecting and revitalizing our state’s historic downtowns and commercial corridors, and I look forward to their continued success.”

Main Street Zephyrhills, Inc. is proud to be one of 40 accredited Main Street programs across the state.

It is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing economic vitality through historic preservation, downtown improvement, and a strong sense of community.

With support from volunteers, downtown merchants, partnering organizations, and its members, who all share the belief that a strong, historic downtown is an essential component of our hometown identity, Main Street Zephyrhills works to make the area thrive.

Signature Main Street Zephyrhills events include Founders Day, Music and Motorcycles, Halloween Howl, and Festival of Lights.

Besides its slew of popular community events, the organization has kept busy with a number of other initiatives over the past year.

Main Street Zephyrhills launched its first new event post-COVID, called the Main Street Market, held at Clock Plaza, on 5th Ave.

The artisan vendor market will continue to be hosted on the third Saturday of each month, from February through July, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, Main Street Zephyrhills unveiled downtown’s newest public art piece, in the form of an aqua-themed mural on 7th Street called ‘Ocea,’ which pays homage to “The City of Pure Water.”

Completed by artists Jonathan Sierra and Fonz Eljaiek, the colorful mural centers around the idea that water is restorative and connects humanity.

Main Street Zephyrhills also revamped its website to include ADA-compliant features, small business startup guide, directory for businesses and attractions in the downtown district, members’ page, and more. Check it out here: mainstreetzephyrhills.org

Additional exciting projects are forthcoming, including new locally-themed downtown banners, plus the rehabilitation of Pocket Park, at 5th Ave. and 12th St. The upgraded park will eventually include the addition of a community bulletin board, a mini mural, and indigenous plants.

“Let’s go downtown!”
