The dates are set for the International Indian Film Academy Weekend and Awards and they will be April 24-26. The final show will be held at Raymond James Stadium home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Earlier this month it was requested that rather than have the event in June that it might be better to move up the date. You see this event that was supposed to be some 35,000 people is now expected to accommodate some 50-60,000 people. Now if you have ever been to Tampa in June it rains a lot. We also have this weather event called Tropical Storms or a possible Hurricane that sometimes come a little early in the season.
So they wanted the Stadium and to do that you need to have the event in March or April. The weather will be beautiful and there will be so much to do at that time. The extra people is not a problem. Tampa has held the Superbowl several times.
Tampa is looking forward to the event. There is even word that some events will be held out at the University of South Florida. Now being a Tampa born and raised individual I can tell you at the time of this event we will have the beaches all ready to go and the water will be around 78 degrees. The baseball team the Tampa Bay Rays will be playing. We have Busch Gardens also in Tampa. If you take I-4 to Orlando you have Disney World and Universal Studios.
Tampa is also know for having some good restaurants and I can tell you City Hall will pull out the red carpet. So I can say that we are all looking forward to Bollywood coming at the end of April and hope everyone has the time of their life. Enjoy.
