Tampa Bay heats up with the Pinellas Pepper Fest

I’ll never forget it. There he was, looking up at me in tears, with a face as red as a firetruck. And there I was…cheering him on. He and a few others were the first batch of people I’ve ever gotten to watch as they frantically sucked on the world’s hottest lollipop– the devilish brainchild of Michele Northrup (AKA “The Saucy Queen“). Here’s another lolly alum who has “faced the fire” so to speak:

 Fast forward to now, and I’m getting pumped to watch them do it again! Think you can handle it? If so, you might need to come on down to the England Brothers Bandshell Park this weekend for the 10th Annual Pinellas Pepper Fest!

The Spicy Lolly Lick-A-Thon is only one of the awesome events going on this weekend. Check out this (jalapeno) jam packed schedule!

It’s only $3.00 per person to get in, and kids 12 & under are free. Talk about a cheap day out! I’ve ordered off of the dollar menu at Taco Bell for more than that. #budgetgoals
Plus a portion of the event will benefit Elizabeth’s Animal Rescue and Sanctuary in nearby Odessa, FL. I’d say that’s a win for everyone, especially our furry friends in search of their forever homes.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, I’m giving away two pairs of tickets to the Pinellas Pepper Fest on the Lindsey Goes Local Instagram and Facebook pages! Head on over and enter now.
It’s time to get spicy!
