Welcome to this week’s blog! We have an exciting event to talk about – the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts. Every year, downtown Tampa is transformed into a massive outdoor museum space when hundreds of artists come together to showcase their work. It is a celebration of visual and performing arts that draws in people from all over the region. This year’s festival promises to be bigger and better than ever with an incredible line-up of art, music, food, and more. Also, this week is the commencement of the Strawberry Festival—the most attended festival in Florida. You will find me there this weekend, making the line to purchase Amish Donuts!
