Ocala horses, history and heroes event encourages Marion County residents to visit downtown
Thoroughbreds, quarter horses and a variety of other breeds will be parading around downtown Ocala this evening as part of the “Horses, History and Heroes” event in downtown Ocala. The Save the Marion Theatre Group is partnering with the Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park to sponsor this 5 to 7 p.m. event to promote the Christmas Day release of the new Steven Spielberg epic “War Horse.” More importantly, the event coordinators say it’s a perfect way to bring the community downtown for a special holiday event that not only features the 73 year old historic Marion Theatre, but also brings attention to the number one economic engine of Marion County—-horse farms. Donna Green-Townsend talked with the Co-founder of the Save the Marion Theatre organization, Buddy Martin about this evening’s event.
