Buccaneers and City Of Tampa to Celebrate Creamsicle Day 

Fireworks Show and New Creamsicle Merchandise Set for August 14


Today the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the City of Tampa announced that August 14 will be recognized as 'Creamsicle Day', an official holiday in Tampa. Mayor Jane Castor will attend training camp at the team's AdventHealth Training Center at One Buccaneer Place and assist with the celebration by kicking off the day's festivities. Throughout the day, Tampa will commemorate 'Creamsicle Day' with activations all over the city, including the downtown skyline and Raymond James Stadium turning orange through night lighting. The day will be capped with an evening event at Armature Works, inviting Buccaneers fans from all over the Tampa Bay area.

"The return of the creamsicle uniforms for our game against the Detroit Lions on October 15th has our fans excited and energized, so we are taking this opportunity to partner with Mayor Castor and the City of Tampa to celebrate Creamsicle Day in grand fashion on August 14th," said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. "It will be a daylong celebration of everything orange throughout the city starting with our training camp practice in the morning and ending with a great fireworks display against the backdrop of an orange downtown skyline at Armature Works in the evening. We look forward to joining our great fans and corporate partners to make this the first of many memorable Creamsicle Day celebrations to come."

Fans can kick off Creamsicle Day by joining the team for their final open training camp practice the morning of August 14. The practice will be open to the general public (ticket required) with the first 2,500 fans receiving a free creamsicle-themed flag. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the team's beloved former mascot, Bucco Bruce, for the first time since 2012 and purchase new creamsicle merchandise before it is released online at 11:00 a.m. The new merchandise will complement the creamsicle jersey and honor the organization's distinctive color scheme.

The City's celebration will conclude at Armature Works with a special Creamsicle Fireworks Show at 8:30 p.m. Activities will start at 7:30 p.m. with appearances from Buccaneers Cheer, Bucco Bruce, and the Buc Beat Line. In addition to themed food and drinks offered by Armature Works vendors, there will be tailgate-style games and photo opportunities with Buccaneers Legends.

In partnership with nearly 50 local organizations and companies around the area, creamsicle activations will take place throughout the day. For the complete list of participants, click here. Fans interested in attending the open practice should go to for more information.
