See for details.

Fish and fun

Ruskin Seafood Festival One of the biggest events of the year is at E.G. Simmons Park on Saturday and Sunday.

The park is at 2401 19th Ave. NW, Ruskin. Admission is $5 for adults, free for children younger than 12. Food is generally between $2 and $14.

Tampa Comic Book Convention It features 85 tables of comics, videos, toys, action figures, anime, Star Wars memorabilia, artwork, trading cards and more.

Rock and Shi, Amanda Stevens, Tommy Castillo, John Beatty, Joel Wynkoop, WWF Star Lanny Poffo and Santa Claus autographing copies of Santa Claus Funnies.
