Tampa Bay Area Events: Red Bull Flugtag

In case you missed all of the action this past weekend, Red Bull Flugtag Tampa Bay broke records for a Flugtag event in the United States!  In addition to 36 crazy teams attempting to fly homemade, human-powered flying machines, approximately 110,000 people filled the sidewalks, balconies and waterways in and around the Tampa Convention Center. 

If you were there at the beginning, then you saw the winning team!  It was the first craft of the day, local team Tampa Baywatch, that took home top prize with their hotter-than-“The Hoff” skit and a flight distance of 109 feet.
