By JON WILSON, Consulting Editor, TB Reporter
St. Pete’s Christmas and holiday events come skating in this Saturday
ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg’s venerable Santa Parade — it’s the 89th annual — is Saturday (Dec. 5) starting at 10 a.m. The route travels from Central Avenue and Fifth Street, east to Bayshore Drive where it turns north before ending at Fifth Avenue N. Free family fun, bands, floats and more are in store for the spectators.
Meanwhile, 65 tons of snow are expected to fall on North Straub Park at the annual holiday Snowfest celebration. It takes place from 10:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. Activities include toboggan slides for big and little people both, an art tent, karaoke, moonwalks, a giant slide and a Kiddyland area designed especially for pre-schoolers with an inflatable train, cookie decorating and more. Wristbands are $5 and are required for all activities.
Santa will be present in North Straub Park, as will an opportunity to “glice” skating on a simulated ice rink. Both activities typically are from 6 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: December 5-6, Dec. 9-13, and Dec. 17-23. Skating is $5 for 30 minute sessions. Santa visits are free and cameras are allowed.
