        Drive into Crescent Lake Park on Saturday, December 19th for a showing of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. The lot opens at 7pm and the movie will begin at 8pm. Anyone can go, and the spots are first come, first serve with free admission!

        Along the waterfront in Downtown St. Petersburg, there are thousands of holiday decorations. All throughout downtown, in North Straub Park, South Straub Park, Pioneer Park, Vinoy Park, and the St. Pete Pier, there are holiday lights and displays.

        Although most parades have been cancelled due to Covid-19, many free boat parades still taking place! The Tampa Riverwalk Holiday Lighted Boat Parade will be taking place on December 19th, the first Saturday of winter break. There will be many public viewing areas, and observers will be required to wear facemasks. To register a vessel in the boat parade, the fee is $50, but to go and watch it is completely free!
