It's That Time of The Year Again…Happy #813Day!
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Aug. 12, 2021) - It is time to celebrate and show your love for the 813 on social media.
August 13 is 813 Day, and Hillsborough County wants to see residents, business owners, visitors, and fans near and far celebrate the county and the best area code and community in the land.
To celebrate right, Hillsborough County is asking for your help.
There are three distinct ways to join the fun on social media on 813 Day:
- Make 813 Your Own - It's easy to show your love for the 813 with objects you have laying around your house or organization. Collect your found objects and create an "813" image out of them. While Hillsborough County is launching this challenge on its Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram platforms on August 13, you can share your photos and videos in advance by direct message to the County's social media team.
- Participants are also encouraged to post their "813" to their own social media accounts using the hashtag #813Day. Show your spirit by making household or office items into the 813 and sharing them with the hashtag #813Day. For example, a resident with a woodworking shop can put together an 813 sign out of scrap lumber, or a toddler might make an 813 out of toys.
- Light Up the 813 - Does your organization have the ability to light up its building or grounds? Hillsborough County is asking for your help in painting the county sky orange on #813Day. Direct message the County's social team with photos or videos of a test run, so that they can be pieced together for a "light up" on social at 8:13 p.m. on August 13. Your organization will join locations around our community in celebrating #813Day at night.
- Follow and tag - Visit Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now TikTok and tag @HillsboroughFL to join in the fun and celebrate living in the best area code. Remember to use #813Day on all of your fun social media posts for a chance to be featured.
