April St Petersburg Area Events Splashy

I’m afraid they’re going to get wet

As I sit here nursing a foot energy, the thought if a Tri seems next to impossible.  

Perhaps you feel differently.  Or maybe you just want to show some support for those who are so ambitious.  At the very least you need to know where they’ll be and where the streets will be closed.

Tampa Bay Caribbean Carnival

Tampa Bay Caribbean Carnival

This year’s event will be held at the Florida State Fairgrounds on April 25th, 2020.

Now in its 15th year, this festival continues to preserve and enhance the cultural and historical legacy of Caribbean American heritage.

Events include exhibits, crafts, a street parade, a Steelpan Jamboree, top-name entertainment and vendors, a Jouvert morning experience, and high-stepping masquerade bands.  This might be the most colorful and lively festival the area has to offer and it is held in the beautiful month of April. I can’t think of a better reason to give it a go.
