If you’re coming from Tampa International Airport or the beaches, just hop on Interstate 275 North. Merge onto Interstate 4 East and take the first exit - Exit 1 for 21st/22nd Street. Follow the signage to find the parking garages and other landmarks in Ybor City.

If you’re coming from Busch Gardens, take Interstate 275 South and merge onto Interstate 4 East, where you will get off on Exit 1 for 21st/22nd Street. Head south until you can make a right onto 7th Avenue and you’re heading for the heart of the historic district.

From Orlando, Plant City and Lakeland areas, the easiest way to get to Ybor City is to follow Interstate 4 east until Exit 1 for 21st/22nd Street. Turn right on any cross street from Palm Avenue to Adamo Drive to find historic Ybor City.

Tampa’s public mass transit system, HART bus line, stops directly in Ybor City.

Parking: Plenty of parking is available for $1 per hour at all City of Tampa operated lots and garages.

Distance: 5K Run (3.1 miles)

Course:A luminary lined 5K run course on closed city streets adjacent to Ybor City in Tampa. 

A super cool sparkling Finisher Medal (manufacturing problems will prohibit us from offering a flashing LED medal this year), colorful event shirt, accurately measured and well monitored course lined with luminaries, holiday entertainment, and hot chocolate and holiday cookies at the finish. Registering by November 30th ensures proper t-shirt size.
