The Tampa Bay area always seems to have something going on, and we locals can’t complain. Memorial Day weekend is quickly approaching, so it’s time to plan what you’ll be doing on this weekend of remembrance. At the Blind & Shutter Gallery, we recommend these fabulous family-friendly events.
For all the athletic families out there, the 5th annual Flavor Run will be held Saturday, May 27, from 9 a.m. to noon. Located at the Florida State Fairgrounds, this event will be filled with fitness, outdoor fun, healthy food, and more. If you can get five friends or family members to sign up for the event, you will also receive a refund of up to $20 for spreading the word! Practicing good health and having fun while saving money? Sounds like a win-win situation to us.
In addition to the Flavor Run, the Honor Our Heroes 5K Run will also take place on May 27. Registration ranges from $20-$38 and includes an event t-shirt, one meal, two craft beers post-race, raffles, and more! This 5K will begin at 8 a.m. and is located in the city of Oldsmar.
To continue the fun, the Light Up Tampa Bay Memorial Day Weekend Celebration will be held on Sunday, May 28, from 6 to 10 p.m. Considered the largest celebration to take place this upcoming weekend, Light Up Tampa Bay will be hosted at Channelside Bay Plaza and is a family-friendly and pet-friendly event. There will be live music, entertainment, waterfront fireworks, and activities for all ages. Go check out the amazing firework display starting at 8:45 p.m.!
End the three-day weekend at the Memorial Day Sunset Ceremony. This free of charge ceremony is located at Largo Central Park and will begin at 7 p.m. The ceremony will include a speaker, wreath presentation and light music.
Whether you decide to attend these events, spend a day at the beach, or find activities of your own, the Blind & Shutter Gallery hopes you and your family have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!
