ATTENTION: The annual Light Up Tampa Bay event has MOVED locations for NYE 2018 in Channelside. The fireworks show and viewing area will be at Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park.
The event has moved locations this year. It will be located at Cotanchobee Park and limited to up to 4,000 people. I don't think they are doing wristbands for this event.
Great question Michelle! I have a call into Channelside and trying to find out. Will post the reply as soon as I hear from someone.
