Ciccio Restaurant Group Welcomes National Championship Fans

As we speak, downtown Tampa and Raymond James Stadium are being transformed for the events surrounding the College Football Playoff on Monday, January 9th. Before Clemson and Alabama play, however, several events will take place around the bay area that are slated to attract thousands of people from across the United States. News Channel 8 reports that 50,000 people will visit downtown Tampa, alone, this weekend.

Among the events is the AT&T Playoff Playlist Live! This three day music festival will take place at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park beginning Friday. Stars like Usher and Gavin Degraw will be performing alongside several local performing artists.

Sunday, January 8th, from 11am-4pm guests are invited to join Fresh Kitchen and Better Byrd at the Championship Beach Bash in Clearwater. This family-friendly event will feature games, live music, and the marching bands from both playoff teams.
