The Tampa Bay International Curry Festival now doles out thousands in cash prizes to professional and amateur chefs competing in its curry cook-off, but it started out as a friendly family competition. In 2008, Drs. Sadhana and Ram Ramcharran thought it would be fun to have a curry cook-off at their family reunion. But they were surprised to find out that each of their family members prepared their curries differently and wondered how much more variety there could be in kitchens around the world. Three years later they got the chance to find out when their dream?and not the one about sharks developing legs?came true.

Today thousands of people gather at the festival to taste curries and watch international chefs compete to be the grand curry champion. The family-friendly event also invites guests to listen to live music, play in bounce houses, watch performers, and visit more than 50 vendor booths.

The Fanboy Expo, like stepping through the screen of a blockbuster superhero movie, brings comic and movie fans face-to-face with their favorite characters, actors, and artists. For two days, costumed attendees hob-nob with the Highlander, talk shop with Jerry "The King" Lawler , or chat with Lorenzo Lamas about his much publicized transition from starring in Renegade to opening his petting zoo, Lorenzo Lamas' Llamas. In addition to meeting celebrities from silver and small screen sci-fi and fantasy hits, comic book fans can also pick their favorite artist and creator's brain, snagging an autograph in the process. Should they find themselves in need of a new action figure or collectable t-shirt, fans can make their way to a number of merchandise and memorabilia dealer booths throughout the event space.

The India International Film Festival (IFF) of Tampa Bay selects a small sampling of more than 1,000 films produced in India each year to demonstrate that the most prolific film industry in the world is more than just masala musicals. Like the culture from which they spring, the films speak in a lush polyglossia of English, Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Nepali, Kashmiri—but the common language of humanity unites them all, whether the subject is Down syndrome, terrorism, patriotism, or simply losing yourself to spiritual bliss. Opening-night ceremonies and filmmaker Q&As round out the schedule of events, offering a more immersive movie experience than watching the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 3-D.
