Viva Florida 500 is a statewide initiative led by the Florida Department of State, under the leadership of Governor Rick Scott. The movement's mission is to highlight the 500 years of historic people, places and events in present-day Florida since the arrival of Juan Ponce de Le??n to the land he named La Florida in 1513. Events that tie into the history and culture of the state of Florida become Viva Florida 500th celebratory events. The exhibition does just that by showcasing the land and structures of Florida.
