The small town of Marineland celebrated its 75th anniversary the weekend of Friday, Nov. 13 through Sunday, Nov. 15.
“Marineland is a small town with a big sense of place.” –Mayor of Marineland Leslie Babonis
The small town of Marineland, nestled just between Crescent and Flagler Beach, celebrated its 75th anniversary the weekend of Nov. 13-15. The first day commemorated the towns past with the films that were produced at Marineland such as “Tarzan” in 1938 and “Revenge of the Creature from the Black Lagoon” in 1955.
On the second day, Saturday, Nov. 14, the town celebrated the present with a full day of local bands, vendors and activities. Meanwhile across the street Marineland Dolphin Adventure held a family fun day event to help celebrate the occasion. They featured live music, face painting, bounce houses and animal interactions. The day was ended with a spectacular firework show.
“This celebration turned out to be so much more than we had originally expected,” Mayor of Marineland Leslie Babonis said. “We are so excited to share this milestone with the community and are grateful for all the support we have received.”
For the third day the town of Marineland pulled together to create a time-capsule to commemorate this chapter in the town’s history. The day will start off with a surf exhibition, beach cleanup and a Renewable Energy show. Marineland and its residents look forward to a bright future ahead.
