Greetings Tampa Bay, Jessica here with a reminder for today's holiday festivites!!  Of course everyone will be celebrating their Irish heritage today in honor of St. Patricks Day, but one of the best Tampa Bay area events will be happening at the Channelside Bay Plaza.

Starting at 5:30pm with live entertainment and plenty of food and drink specials, Channelside will host the Tampa Rough Riders as they display one of their infamous floats and ply for the waters of Garrison Channel.  The party will continue rocking until 9pm or later!

In addition, for the second year in a row, the Tampa Attractions Association (TAA) will dye the channel green!!!  But don't worry, this environmentally friendly liquid concentration only lasts a few hours and won't harm any of our Tampa Bay wildlife!  Don't miss this amazing sight to see, taking place at 6pm sharp!

So grab your friends and family and head down to Channelside tonight for a GREEN holiday celebration!  See you there ~
