Event Season Rolls On

Heads up, Tampa! We have yet another jam-packed weekend ahead, filled with parades, performances, and the predictable volumes of traffic that come along with them.

Drivers should be prepared for congestion, detours, and limited on-street parking, as tens of thousands of people will be enjoying themselves in and around downtown throughout the weekend. 

We encourage everyone to arrive early to their event and consider using alternative transportation options to get around. Those options include the Free TECO Streetcar, DASH rides, HART buses, rentable eScooters, and bikes.
