The City of Tampa cancelled their annual River O’Green Fest because of the coronavirus pandemic. That means the river will not be dyed green this year and event organizers said they “encourage everyone to celebrate safely by turning beverages green and supporting local restaurants for traditional Irish fare.” Mascot, Larry the Leprechaun, will still make appearances downtown even though the event is cancelled.
The City of Tampa did say that they plan to bring back the River O’Green Fest in 2022.
After much consideration, the 2021 River O'Green Festival has been canceled.— City of Tampa (@CityofTampa) February 20, 2021
We look forward to welcoming back this Tampa tradition together again in 2022!https://t.co/bfWqTF5inK
