More attention is being paid to security at this weekend’s World of Nations Celebration at Met Park.

Our partner News4Jax reports security was beefed-up after a post on social media warned of possible danger at the 3-day event which started today.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has said that, after the shootings at Art Walk and the Jacksonville Landing in January, it’s taking all threats seriously.
