Cinco de Mayo in Tampa, Mother's Day next weekend, two huge concerts at Ray Jay and The Ritz, three rounds of USF and UT graduation, the Kentucky Derby and those parties... and on, and on, etc.

Please leave yourself more time to get wherever you're going this weekend! If you need an Uber or Lyft, be patient, and be willing to pay surged rates through many parts of the day. But no matter what those surged rates are, they're still cheaper and safer than driving after a few margaritas or mint juleps.

It's going to be one heckuva party this weekend in Tampa Bay, so get out there and enjoy it! Here are our favorite Cinco de Mayo events and everything else this weekend in Tampa Bay!
