Music at the PCI Beach Bar
Catch The TomKats Friday night and then again on Sunday as they host the blues jam which takes place the the first Sunday of every month from 4-8pm.
On the first Friday of every month, Downtown St Pete hosts the block party on Central Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Streets. Streets are closed off with live jazz, arts and crafts and vendors serving up beer and wine. Hop the local bars like the Independent, the Garden and Civiche for an assortment of atmospheres and enjoy a myriad of great cuisine at surrounding eateries. The party starts at 5pm, music 6-9pm.
Our annual boat parade is back and this year it launches from Merry Pier in Pass-a-grille traveling all the way north through Boca Ciega to Blind Pass, so catch it where ever its convenient. The Parade starts at 5:45, but get to Merry Pier early for hot cocoa and maybe even catch a glimpse of Santa. Seriously.
