What’s Happening Now
The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to ring bells and help the programs that assist hurting children and families. Anyone is welcome to volunteer as an individual, family, church group, fraternity, sorority or school. Volunteers are also needed at the Governor’s Square mall for the Angel Tree to assist citizens that would like to adopt an angel for the holidays and provide Christmas for area children.
This is a repeating event. Please call to confirm there has been no interruption.
EVERY SATURDAY – Join us for a FREE, fun PLAYGROUND CROSSFIT FUN Workout for all ages and fitness levels. Your whole body will get back in the action working out with SLOSH PIPES, BODY PIPES, Playground Equipment, Exercise Stations and more!
This is a group for everyone – men and women, 21-70, fit or not – interested in keeping or getting fit, exercise and the outdoors, new and fun workouts, hiking, walking, running, group exercise, and any other fun social and fitness activities. If you just want to stay active and fit – or if you’re the weekend warrior – or if you’re just trying to age with grace – our Meetups are the place to do it with new people who want to join you…
“Because working it out together is more fun than working it out alone.”

11:00am: Children 12 and younger, accompanied by an adult, receive free admission to brand new IMAX documentary, Tiny Giants 3D. This highly-acclaimed giant screen film follows a chipmunk in a wooded forest and a scorpion mouse in Arizona’s scorched desert, as both are forced to grow up fast when they find themselves on their own for the first time. This exciting film allows audiences of all ages to truly see and feel what life is like when you’re under one foot tall, showing that the smaller you are the bigger the adventure. Check out the Tiny Giants on the GIANT screen!
11:45am: Explore the world of tiny animal coverings with
our friends from the Tallahassee Museum! You and your kids can take a look at fur, scales, and other objects up close and personal with a microscope and learn why certain animals have certain coverings. Your kids will also be able to color a chipmunk or mouse mask to take home and be a tiny giant themselves. Several snakes from the Tallahassee Museum will also make an appearance – don’t worry, they won’t get too close to our Tiny Giants or yours!
