Welcome to the Friends of Viva Florida 500 Wiki Project Page.

Please note this is not an official page of Viva Florida 500, the Florida State organization set up to organize the 2013 celebration. But we are friends of this organization and our purpose will be to embellish the many fine articles on Florida history at Wikipedia with new factual information.

Our focus is more than just Spanish history in Florida and will be inclusive of the heritage of many of Florida cultures to celebrate our state's diversity.

The history topics include but not limited to:

Spanish, Native, Afro-American, French, British, Swedish, German, Greek, Italian, Cuban, and more.

Even other pioneers from other states such as Georgia, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Connecticut can be included.

Please visit our discussion page introduce yourself and share what you would like to bring to this project. See section below on articles we need help with.
