TAMPA — It's had ice-skating in the winter. Now, for the first time, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park will offer beach volleyball this summer.
The white-sand court is going in this week for Saturday's Tampa Bay Margarita Festival, but it's staying through July 31.
"We thought it would be pretty cool, like an urban beach kind of thing," said Ferdian Jap of Big City Events, which is organizing the margarita fest.
Promoters liked the idea of setting up and then leaving the court behind for a while. When the Tampa Downtown Partnership saw their plans, it was an easy sell.
