America is getting ready to
mark a pivotal and somber moment in our nation's history.
November 22 marks 50 years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Days before that horrific event, he visited the Tampa Bay area. He stopped here November 18, 1963.
Tens of thousands of people
lined Grand Central Avenue -- now Kennedy Boulevard -- to see his motorcade
Now you can relive the bittersweet day. A special exhibit opens November 8 at the Tampa Bay History Center. It's filled with photos, rare film footage ,and memorabilia from the visit.
The exhibit runs through December 8. For more information, visit www.tampabayhistorycenter.org/temporary.html
Also, be sure to watch FOX 13 next week. Each night at 10, Lloyd Sowers will be taking a look at JFK's visit to Tampa with some of the people who were there.
