Activities galore before Saturday's Florida - Georgia football game.
The 2019 Duuuval Bold City Bash is the new brand name of the World’s Largest Cocktail Party, also known as Georgia Florida weekend.
Before we get to the events of the weekend, let’s talk about whether it is Georgia/Florida or Florida/Georgia. If you are a Georgia fan, you’d say Georgia first; Florida fans say Florida first, but both fans are wrong – probably. The decision to say Georgia or Florida first is extended to the home team. In 2019, the home team is Florida, so to be technically correct, this is the Florida/Georgia… until next year.
The Florida Gators are the home team and are located on the West side of the stadium.
The Georgia Bulldogs are the away team and are located on the East side of the stadium.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here is a listing of some of Friday’s official pre-game events:
Fan Fare at Daily’s Place Flex Field
Let the games begin! At Duval’s Bold City Bash Fan Fare, fans can participate in various interactive experiences.
