Former WWE superstar Dave Bautista and WWE Ambassador Titus O’Neil are organizing and hosting the “Love Walk” event across the Fortune Taylor Bridge in Tampa Baby Florida. The walk will include Tampa business leaders, elected officials, and families. Details can be below, or at the event Facebook page here.
Join Thaddeus Bullard aka WWE Superstar Titus O’Neil, actor Dave Bautista, and celebrity friends as they lead Tampa Bay business leaders, elected officials, and families for a Love Walk across the Fortune Taylor Bridge.
(Ms. Fortune was a former slave who once owned 33 acres on the eastern bank of the Hillsborough River. According to the Tampa Bay Times, in 1892, Hugh McFarlane, a lawyer and a founder of West Tampa, struck an agreement with Taylor to build a bridge connecting West Tampa to the east side of the river.
The bridge not only was a key link to West Tampa’s cigar factories, but has been seen as a symbolic connection between white and Hispanic residents in West Tampa and black residents to the east.
The bridge was renamed in 2018 to restore Madame Taylor Fortune’s honor.)
The walk will end at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park where they will unveil a LOVE WALL created by local artist Bianca Burrows.
*Please bring your own water and wear masks.*
(Special thank you to Bavaro’s and the Bavaro Family for donating the LOVE WALL for this event.)
