Jacksonville’s unofficial sport is football, and the Jaguars don’t start up until the fall. So, in the meantime, check out the home opener of the Jacksonville Sharks of the Arena Football League on Saturday, March 29 at 7 p.m.

The Sharks won the championship again last year, and are poised to take on the San Antonio Talons at Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena for an event themed “Saturday Night Live.”

Additional information and tickets are available at http://jaxsharks.com/

The Slide into Spring Music and Craft Beer Festival takes place on Amelia Island on Saturday, March 29, from noon until 9 p.m.
