Foursquare Day Tampa BayHey there folks! Jerm here to talk to you about one of my favorite annual events coming up this Friday and one of many ways the City of Tampa will celebrate it!

Mayor Bob Buckhorn will sign a proclamation naming the Foursquare Mayor of Tampa in honor of Foursquare Day.  The event will take place at the Sail Pavilion on the Riverwalk at Tampa Convention Center on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 2:04 p.m. 

Now of course there are some details associated with this you have to follow in order be the new Mayor. To be proclaimed the Foursquare Mayor and receive the proclamation, the person must be the reigning mayor of Sail Pavilion on the Riverwalk at 2:04 p.m. on Foursquare Day.  So that means if you are not the Mayor now, then you had better start checking in so that you can unseat the current Mayor, who just happens to be City Bike Tampa!

Mayor Buckhorn will be on hand to sign and present the proclamation.  The event is being held in celebration of Foursquare Day and to help raise awareness about ways social marketing can be used to increase business.  Tools such as Foursquare are not only an easy way to promote a business, but it is free, making it an affordable option to add to a marketing program.

Here is a little, or rather big fun fact for ya in that Foursquare Day, started in Tampa by Nate Bonilla-Warford! This grass-roots movement celebrates social media, local communities and businesses!
