Monday, November 18, 1963 was a historic day for the Tampa Bay area, which was suddenly thrust into the national spotlight as tens of thousands got the chance to see the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, in Tampa. It was a day few will forget.

Some of the images in this gallery can be seen in a new film -- JFK in Tampa: The 50th Anniversary -- a documentary celebrating JFK's visit to the Bay area, preserving the history and special memories of that day... as told by those who were there. http://jfkintampa.org/
