Our fabulous weather is a premier Tampa, Florida attraction. This weekend is bound to be sunny and cool, perfect for a day outdoors. Our partners have planned ahead and put together some fun in the sun for you at a few favorite local Tampa Bay area events!

Saturday, Plant City is hosting the 6th Annual Plant City Pig Jam State BBQ Championship. Pig Jam is a BBQ festival where locals compete in professional, amateur and kid’s BBQ competitions. Throughout the day, there will be live entertainment, local taverns, shopping, and did I mention barbeque?

On Sunday, Hyde Park Village will be the home of the Gasparilla Film Festival Children’s Day. From 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., three will be children’s activities like origami, face painting and moon bounce. There will also be clowns music and food. From 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., grab your pillows and blankets from the car and settle down to watch a family movie together.

Both festivals have free admission, so pile everyone in the car and spend sometime outside in Tampa Bay this weekend! For a complete list of things to do in Tampa Bay this weekend, check out our Calendar of Events.
