Tampa Mama Loves: Cirque du Soleil VOLTA Comes To Tampa

No Comments Grand Opening, Partnership, Sneak Peak, Tampa, Tampa Bay, Things To Do

In partnership with the Tampa Bay Bloggers.

I have been a Cirque du Soleil fan since I first saw La Nouba in Downtown Disney (or Disney Springs as it is now known) in Orlando in 2000. I feel in love with everything about the show. The music. The wonder. The entire show. I had never seen anything like it. I have traveled all over the country to see Cirque shows. 9 different shows to be exact. They truly are works of art unlike anything else I have ever experienced. From Vegas to NYC, and cities in between, Cirque du Soleil shows will never disappoint.

I am excited to be on board as a Tampa Bay Blogger to see my 10th show, VOLTA, coming to Tampa February 14, 2018 – March 18th, 2018. Cirque du Soleil VOLTA, written and directed by Bastien Alexandre and with Jean Guibert as the director of creation. International electronic group M83 as composer and musical director, brings his space-age future pop sound to the Cirque du Soleil stage for the first time ever. The show will be presented under the Big Top at the Tampa Greyhound Track February 14, 2018 – March 18, 2018. The name VOLTA refers to a sudden about-face, a change in emotion or idea often used in poetry. It also speaks to the jolt of energy delivered through the show.

From the Cirque du Soleil website: “Freedom is the ultimate rush. VOLTA tells a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score.”

OMG!! I can’t wait!!! Annnddd…. I am giving away a set of 4 tickets on my Instagram account and I hope you’ll hop over and enter!

I can’t wait to see it opening night! Make sure to follow along for a sneak peak of opening night!

It’s coming to Tampa!  If your kids are huge fans- then you won’t want to miss THIS!

The hugely popular Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will be making its first appearance in Tampa on Saturday, February 8th at International Plaza at 10am t0 8pm (the Cafe Truck will be outside of the mall, at Bay Street). The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is a mobile vehicle of cuteness that offers a delicious array of Hello Kitty sweets and special goodies to fans of all ages; it has been rolling up to festivals & events across the U.S. since its official debut at Hello Kitty Con in October 2014.

The yummy treats on board the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will include a 3-piece Hello Kitty cookie set, a rainbow macaron box set that includes a surprise Sanrio character design, a 4-pack of mini cakes, and bow-shaped bottles of water. In addition to the goodies, a Hello Kitty Cafe mug, a supercute pink Hello Kitty Cafe t-shirt and the pop icon’s signature bow headband will also be available to purchase.

….and just added….a limited edition Hello Kitty for President frosted cookie! Hello Kitty kicked off her Hello Kitty for President campaign earlier this week, as part of the “Friendship Party” with a message celebrating friendship, fun and happiness. The specially designed Hello Kitty for President cookie will be limited to only 50 cookies per stop & guests who purchase the special treat will also receive a free bumper sticker.

Fans can follow the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter to stay updated about upcoming appearances and where to find these adorable Hello Kitty treats.

Based on the success of the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck, Sanrio opened the Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Container in Irvine, CA, in July 2016, to continue to spread their message of happiness, friendship and fun through yummy goodies & beverages featuring Hello Kitty and other character friends. The Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up Container, located at the Irvine Spectrum Center, will be open for a year-long residency and offers a menu developed exclusively for the Cafe, and different from the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck.
