Next Weekend: Asia Fest 2012 in Tampa, FL
Sadly, we missed this event last year. But, we did make it to the year before and had fun. The event takes place in the park directly in front of the TBT Forum. We usually park in the parking garage next door. There is a large stage set with some food vendor booths around it. But, don't miss the other vendors that are further down by the water.
The event can be quite hot, so bring your sunscreen and a hat. Come early (11:00AM) to grab a bite to eat and a seat in front of the stage to watch the traditional dances and pageantry. My favorite are the costumes from different countries and the more authentic snacks that are served by the vendors. The Thai Sticky Rice and homemade Beef Jerky make a delicious snack. You can also buy some Halo Halo to cool down. Bring cash and your camera!
