On numerous Sundays beginning in February, the Backyard Picnic Area at Tampa Bay Downs is transformed into a fun-filled gathering place for children and families. Admission is free.
Games, pony rides and bounce houses are among the numerous activities, and party goers can also expect a visit from our beloved track mascot, Mouse the Miniature Horse.
The gathering spot under the big tent is within easy walking distance from the outside rail of the track. The atmosphere is also suitable for established Thoroughbred racing fans and individuals being introduced to the sport.
Come check out all that is offered and have your picture taken with Mouse (she loves peppermints and pats on the neck!).
