While the rest of the country enjoys a white Christmas the weather in Florida’s Gulf Coast is anything but frightful. Temperatures in the 70s and 80s predict a fun day for the Outback Bowl Beach Day on December 30, 2016. Clearwater Beach has released the details of the event – the event will be held at Hilton Clearwater Beach, 400 Mandalay Ave., next to Pier 60 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year’s rally will feature the Florida Gators’ and Iowa Hawkeyes’ marching bands, the teams and their cheerleaders. Activities include live music, skydivers and contests, including a tug-of-war. And when all the fun is done, stay for the music and more activities on Pier 60 and watch the spectacular sunset over the Gulf.
If this sounds like something you and your family would like to do, take a tip from the City of Clearwater and park downtown. Parking at the beach is going to be at a premium and it’s so much easier to take either the Jolly Trolley or the ferry to the beach. Make that part of the fun of the day.
