The Reliaquest Bowl is set for January 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. That game will see the LSU Tigers take on Wisconsin. Ahead of the big college game, the ReliaQuest organizers will host a New Year’s Eve parade in Historic Ybor City. This is a one-of-a-kind pep rally and we are all about it.
Tampa’s historic Ybor City is the host of the ReliaQuest Bowl New Year’s Eve Parade. Fans will enjoy High School Marching Bands from across the country along with floats and the participating college bands and cheerleaders as they march down 7th Avenue. Stay for the Big Storm Brewing Pep Rally at the end of the parade route then stop by Big Storm Brewery and the many restaurants and night spots throughout Ybor and Downtown Tampa. The Parade steps off at 5:30pm.
On January 1, Bowl fans can warm-up for the big game outside the stadium starting at 9am with live music on stage, entertainers, interactive games and appearances by the college bands and cheerleaders. The pre game event will feature various displays from Tampa Bay Lightning, the U.S. Air Force , Busch Gardens, Visit St Pete – Clearwater and more.
