Mayor Bob Buckhorn
Mayor Buckhorn and the youngsters of Tampa Gym and Dance are ready for Saint Patrick's Day. Join us for the Mayor's River O'Green this Saturday from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. 

"From the Desk of Mayor Buckhorn" is designed to give citizens greater insight into the Mayor's Office. Every week, Mayor Buckhorn will offer a snippet of what he's currently working on.

"If you didn’t come out to Curtis Hixon Park last year to see the Hillsborough River turn bright green, then you cannot miss the celebration this year. Join us Saturday for live music, food trucks, games, craft beer, and more. A green river for St. Patrick's Day is one of the perks of having an Irishman as your mayor!"
