Best free kid’s events this spring in Tampa
MacDill Air Force Base

One of the best things about living in Florida is being able to enjoy outdoor events all year long. Kids especially love to get out of the house and have some fun in the community. The Tampa Bay area is home to many events all year long, including some free events that are planned for the little ones this spring. Here are some of the best events planned in March and throughout the spring season.

Home Depot Kids Workshop

Kids will have a blast at the Home Depot Kids Workshop where they can have the opportunity to make their very own special craft. Kids will be able to put their creative skills to work and learn some basic handyman skills in the process. All kids get to take their craft home with them, along with their certificate of achievement, a Workshop Apron and a commemorative pin (while supplies last). The Home Depot Kids Workshop is scheduled for March 5, 2016 from 9 a.m. until noon. This is a free event and available at all Home Depot locations, including the one located at 1712 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa. For more information call the Dale Mabry location at (813) 879-1000.
