5 things to do under $5: Apple's Steve Wozniak, mini golf in the library, Clearwater street parties

1 Steve Wozniak: The Apple co-founder, above, will give a free talk on Tuesday, Feb. 20 as part of USF Muma College of Business’ new Thought Leader series. The college’s dean will conduct a discussion about everything from the need for entrepreneurship to business issues in the age of technology. Audience questions can be submitted via Twitter using #USFMumaTLS. It’s free at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the USF Sun Dome, 12499 USF Bull Run Drive, Tampa.

USF Engineering Expo: This year’s theme is "Sustainability and Engineering in the Future" and it’s free. Students in grades K through 12 can meet and talk with local engineers and engineering student organizations at the University of South Florida. The expo features hands-on exhibits and shows designed to encourage students to pursue science and mathematics. 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday-Saturday. 4202 E Fowler Ave., Tampa.

Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival: One of the last remaining old-school fishing villages, this tiny town near Bradenton earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Since seafood is shipped all over the country from the docks in Cortez, this really is a place to find the freshest seafood. All proceeds from this annual festival go to protection and restoration of bay habitat. There will be live music and dancing, marine life displays, nautical arts and crafts, children’s activities, beer and plenty of seafood. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Florida Maritime Museum, 4415 119th St. W, Cortez. $4, 11 and younger free. (941) 254-4972.

4 Clearwater street parties: Downtown Clearwater will be all about the motors this weekend at two free street parties. Saturday is the first Clearwater Bike Fest, with motorcycles lining Cleveland Street between the 400 and 500 blocks. There will also be food trucks and a concert by Robby Steinhardt and the Music of Kansas with Stormbringer at 5-9 p.m. Saturday.

Then on Sunday, Cruisin’ at the Cap returns. It’s the annual street party with a classic car show with music by the Reverend Barry and the Funk, food trucks and vendors in front of the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., from noon to 5 p.m.

Mini Golf at the Library: You can forget the shushing on Saturday when Plant City’s public library is transformed into a family friendly 12-hole mini golf course to benefit the Friends of the Bruton Memorial Library. 5:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday. 302 W McLendon St., Plant City. $5 to play, $8 for the whole family. (813) 757-9215.
