Tampa Riverwalk lights up for the holidays

The city of Tampa kicked off the Riverwalk’s annual Holiday Spectacular Monday night.

Mayor Jane Castor flipped the switch during a special tree-lighting ceremony on the water near the Convention Center docks.

The lights will stay on through January 2.

The next big holiday event along the Riverwalk is the lighted boat parade on Saturday, December 18.
