Localtopia Returns Saturday, Feb. 6
By JON WILSON, Consulting Editor, TB Reporter
The free celebration of all things St. Petersburg will take place in Williams Park, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
ST. PETERSBURG — Sometimes called “the community event of the year,” Localtopia will pack Williams Park Saturday with thousands enjoying music, specialty “villages” and the wares of nearly 200 vendors.
Every item, every show, and every sound and aroma is locally produced, organizers say, and the St. Pete-centric approach is what makes the event special. It’s back for its third year.
The event is big enough to spill out of the park. Third Street will be closed between First and Second Avenues N to create space for local restaurants, food trucks and beer trucks.
