Be sure to arrive early for the Children’s Gasparilla Extavaganza this Saturday in Tampa so the entire family can take advantage of some really cool activities and events before the big parade!
One event we’re really looking forward to is the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Rodeo at Bayshore Boulevard and S Rome Avenue from 11am-1pm. The Tampa Police Department, onBikes, FDOT Tampa and Event Fest, Inc. are teaming up to put together this spectacular event that will allow your children to take part in a bike course which will emphasize skills they need to know to ensure their safety like signalling, stopping and maintaining a single lane.
While you are there, your child can be fitted for a FREE bicycle helmet they can take home…this offer is only while supplies last! Thanks to a very generous donation by onBikes, 100 bicycles in three different sizes will be raffled away, so be sure to register! The winners will be announced after parade day.
