Mayor Bob Buckhorn
Mayor Buckhorn's River O'Green celebration drew a large crowd to Curtis Hixon Park on Saturday. Attendees enjoyed food trucks, craft beer, games, live entertainment, and of course, the view.
   Check out the timelapse footage of the river.

"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.

"Downtown is booming. This Saturday, the Mayor's River O'Green, the Cigar City Criterium and Street Festival, and the Tampa Bay Lightning game packed our downtown with thousands of people. In the next couple of years, we will see 2,100 more units built in our urban core. It's exciting to watch this transformation happen."
