Date:

June 6, 2018

Day:

Wednesday

Time:

9:15 AM County Bus departs Northdale Park for downtown and a tour of partially restored Tampa theatre. (estimated return 3:00 PM)

Event:

Tour $6 Million Renovated Tampa Theatre

Cost:

$ 14 (Click <HERE> for payment information)

Details:
Tampa Theatre has always been described as beautiful, but you should see it after its Phase One $6 million dollar, six-week restoration project. Can you say "beautiful-er" ? The seats are softer, the aisles are wider, the colors are brighter and so are the lights. We'll enjoy a guided tour but there is still no elevator, so stairs must be climbed to enjoy the balcony. Stairs might be worth the challenge - that's where you hear tales about the ghosts. If stairs are a no-go, you can hear most of that part of the tour from the orchestra level. And for the finale, we'll have our own private concert by one of the theatre's organists on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ.
Just down the street, another restoration project is our destination for a Dutch-treat lunch. The Heights Market is the new name for the historic Tampa Armature Works building where a wide variety of food is served by various vendors.
 

Payment covers tour & reserves your spot on the bus!

Event:

ICE Event at Gaylord Palms

Cost:

$ 43 (Click <HERE> for payment information)

 

NOTE: The following was prepared using the ICE events of 2017. Details for 2018 production won't be available until October and this information may be amended when it is received.

Details:

So you thought you'd never EVER again need your gloves, ski caps, sweat shirts/pants and thermal underwear when you moved to Florida? Well, not until now, 'cause here's your chance to wear them for a day in Kissimmee, Florida. You'll definitely need all of them in the ICE display at Gaylord Palms. The temperature there is kept at 9 degrees so holiday figures can be chiseled from huge blocks of ice - all while you watch.

And there's more! The fee you pay the OWLS is for your transportation and entry fee, which covers the walk-through to see the ice sculptures, a stage production of Cirque Dreams, and the Atrium Light show. But take your credit card! For another $17 (paid when you decide) you can enjoy unlimited snow tubing on real snow! ? Tubes are furnished, slope is about 20 feet high and stairs must be climbed to top, carrying tube.

For another $10, "Santa's Snow Throw" is another option. You'll receive a small bucket of real snow balls, and shown targets (NOT YOUR FELLOW OWLS). And if you'd like to hear Mrs. Claus read holiday classics and sing Christmas carols, it will cost an additional $10.00. Included are her world-famous cookies and a glass of cold milk.
We will remain at Gaylord Palms for your Dutch-treat lunch, with quite a variety of food choices: a frozen yogurt shop, a Mediterranean buffet, two Starbucks shops, a sports bar, and of course, a steak house.
