ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.-- Feliz Cumpleanos -- ancient Spanish style! The city is preparing to celebrate 450 years of St. Augustine's inhabitance.
But some know little about it.
"Very vague," Ryan Waters said.
Waters' parents own Crystal Clear Gallery. In his eyes, extra visitors mean extra business.
"We all need to be on the same page and just promote it," he continued.
This afternoon, the powers that be met to iron out the details for the 2015 shindig.
Former Mayor George Gardner believes while intentions are good, the city is way behind in the process.
"What it needs is community to be involved and not simply fed ideas from City Hall," he said.
Current Mayor Joe Boles says the planning committee has it under control. Infrasture improvements are being made, and the sea wall is getting an upgrade.
"We do not want an overcrowded situation like 4th of July every week," he said.
Waters isn't convinced that will make the city ready to host such a big party. He hopes leaders will be more aggressive.
"Go big. Go big or go home. No need to slow roll it, just do it up," he said.
The King and Queen of Spain are expected to visit St. Augustine sometime in 2014.
