Ok, I am about to provide a list of things to do in Tampa Bay that is unlike anything you have seen. 

First, let me tell you that tickets are still available to the 2008 ACC Football Championship, which takes place this Saturday at Raymond James Stadium.  And, let me tell you that you won’t find a better deal for a weekend full of entertainment and excitement! 

With the 48-hour celebration of ACC football this weekend, it’s time to start planning out your Championship itinerary.  Here are just some of the highlights of the weekend’s festivities  and Tampa Bay area events for the Tampa Bay community to participate in:

It all takes place at the Channelside Bay Plaza Courtyard.  The Toast to the Atlantic Coast is the biggest downtown party happening during Championship Weekend.

9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. –  ACC FanFest: It all happens at Raymond James Stadium - Lot 6D.  ACC FanFest is the biggest party during the 48-hour celebration of ACC football. There will be over 200,000 square feet of interactive games, team mascots, pep rallies, food and beverage, autograph signings, game merchandise, jumbotrons and general family fun. All of the excitement is presented by ACC Corporate Partners.

10:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. – Atlantic Division Pep Rally at the ACC FanFest.  Atlantic Coast Conference football fans can come out and help root their team on to victory during the Atlantic Division Pep Rally.

11:30 a.m. – ACC Mascots Game at the ACC FanFest.  Following the Pep Rallies for the Atlantic Division and Coastal Division teams, attendees will witness one of the marquee events during the 48-hour ACC celebration.  The ACC Mascots Game brings mascots from all 12 schools together for hard- (or soft-) hitting fun. 

The game starts at 1pm, so make sure you come out and see Boston College and Virginia Tech go head-to-head to see who will wear the ACC crown!  And like I said, you can still purchase tickets to the game!!!! 

If all of that isn't the best Tampa Bay entertainment you've ever seen, then I challenge you to come out and participate and I bet you'll change your mind.  With all of this going on, you’ll definitely want to come out and get involved.  For what to do and to learn more about the ACC Football Championship weekend AND for tickets, log on to www.TheRoadToTampaBay.com
