This thread is basically for people who live in or near Tampa, FL and are interested in going to the Bay Area Renaissance Festival.

The Bay Area Renaissance Festival is the longest and largest Renaissance Festival in Florida. I used to think they were kinda hokey, but after going a couple years ago and having a fun time, we've been to it ever since. It's a great time for adults and kids.
More information is available at:
It's at the MOSI every weekend from Feb 21st - Apr 5th from 10AM-6PM.

I posted a thread a week or so ago with a discount code for printing tickets for this online ($1-$4 off depending on when you get the tickets) using a corporate discount code. But I found a better deal today at PETCO today.
General Admission at the gate is normally $16.95 per person. Even if you get them online using the discount code, you still pay $12.95+$1.25=$14.20. But inside local PETCOs they have $3 off General Admission ticket coupons, as well as a free ticket to bring your pet (normally $10) on March 7 & 8. Since the online ticketing system charges $1.25/ticket transaction fee, this PETCO discount actually saves you $0.25 more per ticket as well as allowing you to bring your dog to the festival for free on March 7 & 8. But, it gets better. According to the website, if you bring 4 cans of food to their food drive during the first three weekends, you get BOGO on adult admission. So, let's say you and three family members go with a pet. With two $3 off coupons, 8 cans of food, and the free pet coupon, you can save a lot:
Person 1 - $16.95 - $3 = $13.95
Person 2 - Free
Person 3 - $16.95 - $3 = $13.95
Person 4 - Free
Dog - Free
Total Cost: $27.90 (for 4 people and a dog)
Total Savings: $16.95x2 + $3x2 + $10 = $49.90!
Not to bad.
Remember, you need one $3 off coupon per paying person, plus the free pet ticket is separate. You may want to call you local PETCOs to see if they have them. But I live in Sarasota, FL which is about 45mins away, and they had them here, so I imagine they have them all over this area.

I am going this sunday but am a bit confused. Do I just need to take 4 cans to the box office where I will be buying my ticket?

As far as what they told me, you will need to bring four cans of food per BOGO free ticket. So if it is just you and another person, you would need four cans of food. If it's you and 3 people, you would need 8 cans of food. If you are going to use the $3 off coupons, you would only need to bring one of those per ticket you are buying. The free pet ticket is only good on March 7&8, so it wouldn't help you out this Sunday.
