ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Sunday, March 14, is also known around the world as Pi Day. When you write out the date as 3/14, it looks like the first 3 digits of the mathematical sequence we know as pi – 3.14.
Physicist Larry Shaw founded the day in 1988 to recognize the infinite number. It became an official holiday in the U.S. more than 20 years later, thanks to legislation that passed the House in 2009.
Lucky for us, the traditional celebration for this holiday includes tasty treats instead of math problems. Want to get in on the action? You can get deals on a slice of pie, pizza pie and even chicken pot pie around Tampa Bay today. One deal even offers a discount on pie-shaped products!
You can also use Pi Day to get messy and support Glazer Children’s Museum in Tampa. The museum is challenging people to donate $3 or take a pie in the face! The best part? It's completely virtual for the pandemic so you can take the fun anywhere!
