The Tampa Downtown Partnership’s Summer Series is back at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, to help residents escape the heat.
The series offers free activities, including a 10,000-square-foot tent to help protect guests from the Florida sun while they burn off some energy.
“To help encourage kids to practice social distance while playing, we’ve incorporated a no-touch design to the project’s large ground mural,” said Shaun Drinkard, senior director of public programming and operations with the Tampa Downtown Partnership, in a news release.
“The mural and table surfaces are coated with a new anti-microbial technology called Safe Shield, which was provided by one of our sponsors, OAI Visual Branding,” Drinkard added.
This year, the colorful ground mural’s theme celebrates Port Tampa Bay, featuring a folklore summer nautical experience.
The mural includes seven different activities, such as hopscotch, mazes, and mirror games.
A storefront in the park features handcrafted ice pops, drinks, snacks and grilled cheese available for purchase.
The Summer Series will run until the Hillsborough County School District resumes classes on Aug. 10.
