Florida Man Games Headed to Francis Field

The Florida Man Games are coming to Francis Field in downtown St. Augustine on Feb. 24 and will feature the most Florida competition ever, according to a media release. The event will be hosted by social media influencer Josh “Wicks” Robinson.

“The legend of the Florida man just keeps growing,” said Pete Melfi, festival organizer and owner/founder of a St. Augustine-based news outlet, in the release. “Having Wicks hosting and emceeing The Florida Man Games was a no-brainer, and it’s awesome to have him on board.”

The festival features a host of crazy and irreverent games, including the Evading Arrest Obstacle Course; A Catalytic Converter, Two Bikes, And A Handful Of Copper Pipes Race Against Time; and Beer Belly Sumo Wrestling, to name a few. The festival will also feature entertainment including a mullet contest, as well as cultural demonstrations featuring alligators, datil peppers, SWAT vehicles, and more, the release states. The Florida Man Games will benefit the Jimmy Jam Community Outreach, a local 501(c)(3) that helps local residents in need.

“The reception we’ve received for the games is amazing,” Melfi said in the release.
