St. Augustine photographer Jackie Hird has been creating calendars featuring stunning St. Augustine scenery since 2015. Her 2023 calendar is now available, with 12 new photographs and local event details on all 12 months, and there’s even a bonus month with updated events for December 2022.
In addition, she has photo notecard packs, with sand snowmen and mixed packs of Nights of Lights in downtown locations.
“Over the years friends have asked what’s happening in St. Augustine; they know that I am involved in our community, and this seemed a great way to keep them informed year round,” explained Hird, a St. Augustine resident since 1988 and a professional photographer since 2004.
“I live, eat and breathe St. Augustine, and I wanted to share the beauty of our city and help encourage family and friends to reconnect and visit,” she said. “The calendar helps them plan their trip with the events listed. My photos reflect a mix of history, architecture and the beautiful natural surroundings of the Nation’s Oldest City.”
Hird explained that local groups, people and organizations are definitely back to planning their events for 2023. She has confirmed all events that are listed on her 2023 calendar; however, they are always subject to change.
