TAMPA (December 1, 2016) – Friends of the Riverwalk along with President and CEO of Yacht Starship and Pirate Water Taxi, Troy Manthey, announce the newest installation along Tampa’s Riverwalk, a 30-foot floating LED Christmas Tree.
Dubbed Holiday Island, Tampa’s largest floating Christmas tree is positioned on the Hillsborough River between the Tampa Convention Center and Tampa General Hospital.

The tree will be lit on December 1 at 7pm and can be viewed from many areas around the Convention Center basin. It will be lit each day from sunset to sunrise through December 25.
