@ PCI Beach Bar

Come out this Fourth of July Weekend for live music all day and night. Tonight it’s Soundwave from 6-10PM, Jason Langoria kicks things off Saturday 1:30-5:30, followed by the Afro-centric musical stylings of  Baye Kouyate 6-10PM. And for the Fourth we got  Josh Magwood from 2-6 doing what he does best.

First Friday

Get downtown for this monthly block party between 2nd and 3rd Streets in St Pete. Perfect jump off to a night out: live jazz, beer and wine vendors, and tons of grub. The streets are closed off until 10, but noone says you have to go home! www.firstfridaystpete.com

Independence Day Celebrations

When choosing you perfect 4th of July venue, there are many options to choose from, but the however is right on St. Pete Beach at Postcard Inn with front row seats to St. Pete Beach’s own fireworks extravaganza. Not only are the mortars fired practically right next door at Upham Beach, you can also have a clear view (weather permitting) of the shows from Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Reddington and if you look over to east, St. Petersburg, which are fired from St. Pete Pier. Most of the shows start around 9p.m.

Breaking Records in Largo

Fourth of July, 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of “The Twist.” Shout out to Chubby Checker. And coincidentally the 50th anniversary of of Largo Recreation, Parks & Arts. So, in honor of this aligning of the stars, Largo will be attempting to break the Guiness World Record of the largest number of people doing “The Twist” in unison. Joey Dee and the Starliters of Peppermint Twist fame will be setting the soundtrack and the cost is $3 per participant. A small price for one helluva an honor. Breaking it down at 6pm at Largo Central Park (101 Central Park Drive).

July 5th Beach Clean-up

Beach clean-up sucks! And so does doing 100 push-ups or organizing your Tupperware cabinet, but it’s one of those things that’s gotta be done and the important part is how good you feel afterward. Following all the fireworks, fun and festivities, the beaches will be in desperate need of some TLC on July 5. Running from 9-11a.m., the clean-up will be from 104th Ave(Publix on Gulf Blvd) to 107th Ave (Bilmar Beach Resort on Gulf Blvd). Plan to meet on the beach at the public parking lot located at 10400 Gulf Blvd. (Across from Publix at Gulf Blvd. and 104th Street). Chipotle Mexican Grill will be dishing out free burrito bucks for participants.
