HOT MAY EVENTS
Tampa Bay Boat Show
May 18- 20
Florida State Fairgrounds
Considered the boating sales event of the season, the Tampa Bay Boat Show is a grand event showcasing area boat dealers and the latest in boating and fishing supplies. This three-day event offers a great way to see and compare millions of dollars of boating inventory all in one location. Area lenders will be on hand offering low financing rates, so you could be on the water before the weekend is over. Open to the public, and admission is free.
Those who follow big name comedy know Lisa Lampanelli. Her raucous, sharp-tongued stage show is not for the weak of heart. Currently starring on Celebrity Apprentice, even Lampanelli makes Donald Trump blanch, so buckle up for one wild night in Tampa.
