‘Work hard and party hard:’ RV City opens ahead of Florida-Georgia game in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — One of the biggest college football rivalries is back. The Florida-Georgia football game has been held in Jacksonville since 1933.

On Tuesday morning, dozens pulled their RVs into prime spots ahead of the game.


RV City is located just across the street from the stadium.

“We got to get our spot, it’s all about the spot,” Joe Clark said. “We are right in Alligator Alley, and we go all the way to the back.”

Jason Edmonds is another fan who waited in line to park inside RV City. He said he’s been parking in the same spot for the last 5 or 6 years.

“We always just try to get a spot under the overpass there, that we way we kind of stay dry if it rains and the water slopes off, so you know as it’s running through everyone else’s campsite, we stay dry,” Edmonds said.

RV City is a staple of the Florida-Georgia football experience.

Fans like Michael McVeigh said reuniting with his college friends is the best part of it all.

“We all have lives that are so busy and so hectic and running around,” said McVeigh. “I certainly agree with the philosophy of work hard and party hard and we are going to do both.”

The Florida-Georgia game kicks off at EverBank Stadium on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
