Ybor Twilight Market: Every Tuesday @ 5:00pm - 10:00pm

This event takes place every Tuesday in the hub of Ybor City, which is one of the coolest places to hangout (if you've never been there, you need to go)! The Ybor Twilight Market features local, natural producers of agriculture, ready-to-eat food, crafts, baked goods, eco-friendly products, and last but not least, LIVE MUSIC!

What's really neat about having something like this to go to in town is that it is different from your every day go out to dinner, hit the mall, maybe catch a movie kind of thing. This event brings all types of people together and it creates opportunities to meet other people in the area. Support your local community and experience the freshest vibe in town every Tuesday night in Ybor City!

Twilight on the Town Walking Tour: Wednesday, June 19th @ 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Have you lived in St. Petersburg for years but just don't have the time to "explore" the city as much as you would like to? Well then you have to try an evening tour with the Saint Petersburg Preservation and stroll through parts of St. Petersburg's history. The walk starts at Central Cafe & Organics and concludes at the Ale & Witch. You'll get a chance to see the best of downtown's 1920′s boom era architecture. This is an inexpensive way to get out of the house and learn about the amazing city of St. Petersburg (it's only a $5 donation to attend the tour).
