By Barbara Ann Kelley,

“First Friday St. Pete” takes place on Central Avenue in the Heart of downtown St. Petersburg every first Friday of the month year round.

Start your weekend off right by sipping a brew or glass of wine while enjoying the rocking tunes of a live street band.

In addition to the live music, there will be food and plenty of  shopping.

St. Petersburg’s 1st Fridays are always popular because of the large diverse crowd that shows up to mingle and hang. This is the perfect event for a fun first date, or a girl’s night out.

Q105 and their DJ’s are the hosts and emcees every month for the First Friday entertainment. Make sure you stop by their booth and say hi.

Street venders will be selling beer and wine to those that are 21 and over.

This event is organized by the Breakfast Optimist Club of St. Petersburg and staff by volunteers. For more information visit the First Friday St. Pete website with this link.
