This weekend is Florida’s back-to-school tax-free weekend, but if you happen to be a gammer, you may want to visit the Florida Mall and not just for the deals the various stores will be having.
The mall will be hosting the Simon GamePlay event during which gaming fans can get behind-the-scenes peeks at game codes and meet some game developers in person.
There will also be giveaways, freebies and more.
Look for the gaming area inside near Saks from 10am to 6pm on Saturday, August 13, and Sunday, August 14, at The Florida Mall.
I don’t know what games are being featured, but the event is being held in conjunction with GameStop, so there will probably be a good variety.
For those 18 and over, there is also a separate Toyota Test Drive event happening in the mall’s parking lot the same days. You can test out some of the latest models and drivers even get a free gift.
The Florida Mall is located at 8001 S. Orange Blossom Trail, at the intersection with Sand Lake Rd.
