JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's known as the world's largest outdoor cocktail party. "It was wonderful. Two in a row. Muschamp is zero in six," said Georgia fan, Henry Mathews.
But Sunday morning, it becomes one of Jacksonville's biggest clean-up efforts. Beer bottles and red plastic cups litter the streets. And you can find hundreds of trash bags piled high all over RV-city. "If you are in the event business this is normal. This is very, very normal," said Tracy Evans.
Just moments after the final whistle is blown, hundreds of SMG and city employees go to work. "We work to get the grounds looking like there wasn't even a game last night. Get it as clean as possible," said Evans.
Tracy is the Assistant General Manager for SMG. She says during a Jaguar home game they collect about five tons of trash. During Georgia-Florida, it multiplies to 32 tons. And that's just the beginning.
"We've got the bleachers coming down and some of them are going out to Mayport to get on the carrier for the big basketball game next week," said Evans.
The Jacksonville fair is already setting up for Wednesday's openning day. And the Jaguars also have a home game next week.
And as for Florida-Georgia, "we are already planning for next year," said Mathews. As they all work to keep the good times rolling.
