The Tampa Downtown Partnership’s Summer Series is back at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park with a giant 10,000-square-foot tent! It’s the perfect place to go to get out of the house and burn off some energy – all while protected from the hot Florida sun. While at Summer Series, you may also enjoy free Wifi provided by PBXChange and listen to local tunes streamed from Tampa’s Downtown Soundtrack on Spotify.
Whatever Pops has also opened a storefront in the park for the Summer Series featuring handcrafted ice pops, drinks, snacks, and grilled cheese.“To help encourage kids to practice social distance while playing, we’ve incorporated a no-touch design to the project’s large ground mural,” said Shaun Drinkard, Senior Director of Public Programming and Operations with the Tampa Downtown Partnership. “The mural and table surfaces are coated with a new anti-microbial technology called Safe Shield, which was provided by one of our sponsors OAI Visual Branding.”
This year the colorful ground mural is themed to celebrate Port Tampa Bay featuring a folklore summer nautical theme. The mural includes seven different activities like hopscotch, mazes, and mirror games. Stop by as often as you like as this program, like all Tampa Downtown Partnership public programs, is free!
