 Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Florida Fiesta Day

 Ybor Chamber Hosts 65th "Street Festival" Saturday, February 25th  



2011 Ybor logo icon(Tampa, FL, February 21, 2012) Ybor City celebrates Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Fiesta Day this Saturday, February 25th from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. This free family-oriented event honors the Cuban, Spanish, Italian, German and Romanian immigrants who settled Ybor City in the late 1800s.


"Come out and enjoy cool clear weather in your National Historic Landmark District," invites Tom Keating, President of the Ybor Chamber. "Stroll famed La Setima and partake of ethnic cuisine and music with family and friends - this is Ybor at its best!"


Ybor's own restaurants will be featured in the Sabor de Ybor. Guests will be able to graze from one end of La Setima to the other. Arte de Ybor will include not only our own "creative retail," but also a variety of arts & crafts vendors.


The Main Stage on 7th Avenue will feature Nathan Herrera Flamenco, the Danny Lozada Salsa Band and the Millie Puente Band. Local arts-magnet schools and the HCC Jazz Ensemble will perform on the Centro Ybor Youth Stage.


Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Fiesta Day is presented by BB&T Bank and sponsored by Centro Ybor, City of Tampa and YCDC.  Media Sponsors include Bright House Networks, the Tampa Bay Times and CBS Radio.
