The best time to visit the major city of Tampa in Florida is from September to December, except probably in February of 2021 when it hosts Super Bowl LV – an event everyone wants a piece of. Otherwise, aside from the best hotel discounts during the last 3 months of the year, the weather is near perfect for enjoying Tampa’s outdoor attractions considering it’s in the high 70s to mid-80s most days.
Maybe that’s why Tampa is enjoying right now sold-out stadium and arena tour legs of the likes of Grammy-winning acts Ed Sheeran and Twenty One Pilots with its much talked about apocalyptic set.
Or why there are almost 50 races and fun runs in the city in November and December 2018 alone.
Rising above the sea of fun activities in Tampa this fall is TFC Live’s TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run at the Philippine Cultural Enrichment Complex on November 17, 2018, Saturday, starting at 10am. This is the third installment of the TIKIM Filipino Fun Run series that kicked off last Mother’s Day at the Coyote Point Recreation Area in San Mateo, California, followed by another on September 22 at the Earl Bales Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
On November 17, a full program is already set! And no less than Philippine Queen of Soul Jaya and TFC’s “Adobo Nation” host Lee Robin Salazar will be on hand to provide world-class entertainment to attendees after the run. Joining them is a solid line-up of live performers.
TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run caught the attention of many with its one-of-a-kind 5k fun run (or walk) that celebrates Filipino culture and the value of giving back. It takes the runners through a course with a unique Filipino food tasting station at each kilometer. Part of the proceeds from the registration is donated to the feeding program of Bantay Bata (Child Watch), a pillar program of ABS-CBN Foundation International.
