Every year, Tampa’s mayor invites residents and visitors to the River O’Green Fest to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Tampa. Hosted in downtown’s iconic Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, this signature event is a charming celebration of all things Irish along the Hillsborough Riverwalk.
Among the seven US cities known for dying a river green, Tampa is a relative newcomer. Chicago started this inspired St. Patrick’s Day tradition in 1961, followed by San Antonio seven years later.
Going Green on Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park
The Hillsborough River is the perfect backdrop for the Irish-themed party with its waters transformed into a vivid shade of green for the occasion. Crowds of revelers will be similarly clad in emerald hues during the free-spirited celebration that includes live entertainment, games, kid’s activities, food trucks, and the always-popular green beer.
St. Patrick’s Day Festivities
As one of Florida’s best St. Patrick’s Day parties, the Mayor’s River O’Green Fest turns the Hillsborough Riverwalk into a day-long adventure brimming with shamrock and the luck of the Irish. Activities include the River O’ Green Gallop, Scavenger Hunt and Leprechaun Costume Contest. The pet-friendly family event traditionally starts at 11:00 am.

Master developer BTI Partners hosted a special groundbreaking event to celebrate the start of Marina Pointe construction on Tampa luxury condos, as well as the 150-slip marina and impressive retail center for Westshore Marina District, the surrounding walkable waterfront community.
Present for the festive occasion were Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, BTI Partners CEO Noah Breakstone and COO Kevin Mays, local dignitaries, construction and retail partners, and buyers and brokers.
Prior to the formal groundbreaking, preliminary marina and site work commenced in late 2019. Initial tower move-in for Marina Pointe Tampa is anticipated to take place within 24 months, and the retail experience of Westshore Marina District will begin delivery in the first quarter of 2021.
Project Status Report
The first tower will feature contemporary towers and townhomes overlooking an impressive deepwater marina, the largest currently under construction on Florida’s West Coast, which provides immediate access to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
Marina Landings places Tampa’s finest in-town, on-the-water lifestyle just moments from residents’ doorsteps, including Cru Cellars wine bar and shop, Duckweed Urban Market boutique grocery, DRNK Coffee Shop + QWENCH Juice Bar, Crave Spa, Salon Color Bar, Sand Surf Co and more. A newly announced boat-up dining destination, Paloma, will also lie a short stroll away from the condominiums via a Westshore Marina District’s waterfront promenade.
“We are thrilled to initiate groundbreaking construction on this one-of-a-kind project and look forward to seeing Marina Pointe and the Westshore Marina District come to life over the next 24 months,” said Kevin Mays, Chief Operating Officer of BTI Partners in a special statement.
“Marina Pointe and the Westshore Marina District represent an unparalleled residential experience here in Tampa, incorporating luxury condominiums, boat slips and boutique shopping, dining and retail services all in the heart of a walkable coastal neighborhood.”
