Educational Series Ties In With Viva Florida Initiative

Tallahassee, FL -- April 24, 2012 --

Tuesday, April 24th, marked the first of a four part series tied in with Viva Florida, a celebration of the 500 years since Ponce de Leon's arrival and exploration of the sunshine state.

Tuesday's History at High Noon was the beginning of a series of programs about the Conquistadors in the land of the Apalachee. More programs are scheduled for the weekend.

"Guests can...take a boat ride and learn about the early arrival of the Spanish conquistadors, and then take a guided tour of the fort with archeologist Dr. Rochelle Mariman from FSU and myself"

Carr was describing one of the events planned for this Sunday at San Marcos de Apalche State Historic Park.

Friday, April 27th, at 1:30 p.m. the Martin House on Lafayette St. will host a presentation and walk through of the DeSoto Winter Encampment. Sunday, April 29th, at 1:30 p.m. is the exploration of Spanish fortifications at San Marcos de Apalache State Historic Park. The events conclude Saturday, May 5th, at 10:30 a.m. at Mission San Luis.
