Today's weather is no indication, but spending a day at the Florida Strawberry Festival is the perfect way to spend a spring day.

Friday (March 7) is Tampa Tribune/ day at the Florida Strawberry Festival and that means savings in the sun for everyone.

The FunPack ride coupon book is automatically discounted from $20 to $18 from noon to 10 p.m. and when you present a coupon clipped from The Tampa Tribune or printed from, you can save an additional $2.

The festival features dozens of free entertainment opportunities daily throughout the festival grounds.
