SPOTLIGHT: Holiday season full of Jacksonville-area events

Jacksonville, Fl — The FSCJ Artist Series brings back The Book of Mormon this weekend at the Jacksonville Center for the Performing Arts. It’s one of several big events in NE Florida this week and weekend.

Deck the Chairs continues nightly in Jacksonville Beach, weather permitting.

It’s surely going to be an electric atmosphere at EverBank Stadium when Jacksonville once again hosts Monday Night Football on December 4. The Jaguars face the Cincinnati Bengals.

This weekend is the 35th celebration of Ronald McDonald House Charities in Jacksonville. The mission is to provide lodging, meals, transportation, and a community of care to critically ill children and their families who need to be near a hospital for treatment. What started as a 10-bedroom house off Jefferson Street has grown into a 53-room, 65,000 square foot House in San Marco featuring a movie theater, fitness center, KidZone Learning Center, rooftop garden and features two beautifully spacious kitchen areas. Friday night, as a celebration of serving families for 35 years, RMHC is hosting its annual Light up the House 5k and 35th Anniversary Block Party. Festivities begin at 5 pm, the 5K starts at 6 pm and a Fun Run starts at 7 pm.
