TAMPA, Florida – A festive New Years Eve atmosphere all around Tampa. Yes, the Lions are focused on the Hogs, but for everyone it’s a carefree attitude to herald the New Year.
Fans from Arkansas and the Nittany Lions poured in some juice early in the day to prepare for an exciting night.
“We’ve been to this bowl once and really enjoyed it here in Ybor City and can’t wait to do the same again,” said Anthony Harvilla, from Carbon County, Pa.
While in Busch Gardens, the “Battle of the Bands” was in full swing and the Blue Band came to rock.
“We really feed off the energy,” smiles Jackson Kollasch, a member of Central York and Blue Band. “We’re getting feedback from fans who really want to see us, we’re just going to give more.”
While there were no clear winners for this contest, we are not done. Get your gear ready and head to Ybor City, where the Outback Bowl Parade is the show of the week as it just goes crazy.
