TAMPA (10 News) – When Daniel Gerard moved from Boston to Tampa in 2018, he was expecting a great Fourth of July fireworks display like he was used to back home.
“Coming from Boston I’m used to the Big Boston Pops Spectacular,” said Girard. But last Fourth of July, “there were people still pulling into the parking garage when the fireworks stopped, and I asked some officers walking by and they said the fireworks were only budgeted for eight minutes. It was pretty pathetic, actually.”
But this year, Tampa’s brand new mayor Jane Castor plans to change all that.
