North Port, Florida -- Monday night, protesters will gather in North Port for a peaceful candlelight vigil to mark six months since the historic Warm Mineral Springs closed.

Sarasota County's Warm Mineral Springs is Florida's only naturally-formed warm water mineral spring and the largest in the world with a constant temperature at 87 degrees.

Back in July, the contract for the vendor that ran the springs ran out, so the park closed.

Starting the first of the year, the county and City of North Port will jointly look for a new vendor in order to reopen the springs.

That could take as long as six more months.
