Not to mention tons of TV reporters!
From left to right. The owner, Daniel Hernandez, the Mayor, Fire Chief and Chief of Police.
The Mayor giving the Hog the first wack. Would you consider that a ribbon cutting?
Two sweet girls sang the Star Spangled Banner, as the crowd gathered outside.
I guess this was the sacrificial hog.
I rarely get downtown anymore, but I was totally amazed at this wall depicting historical downtown Tampa. As you look at it you might think it's a poster of some kind. But the beauty of this is that it's all a mosaic. When you get up close you cannot make out the details, but from afar it was beautiful. A patchwork quilt of sorts :-)
I know this isn't a quilt related post, but I thought I would share this day with you. It was something I've never done before. I hope our friend does well in this prime location.
