The stars are always bright in Tampa Bay, this past weekend we saw firsthand at one of our awesome Tampa Florida attractions, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay!

Jordin Sparks, winner of the sixth season of American Idol, recently stopped by to visit Busch Gardens Tampa Bay over the weekend with her cousins and family to ride some of the awesome roller coasters and hand-feed giraffes on the park’s 65-acre Serengeti Plain. I have hand fed the giraffes there before and at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, it and its a pretty cool experience to say the least!

Jordin and the fam also got to experience the park's new Animal Connections program, which lets guests discover what it takes for someone like Jack Hanna to do a television interview while holding a cute – but squirmy – animal.

Jordin is normally the one in the spotlight, but she took a back seat this go round to let her younger share the camera time with some of the animals, while reading lines from the teleprompter. I thought this part was pretty funny, so give it a look see below! That's all for now, so stay tuned in for more updates on things to do in Tampa Bay!
