This 4th of July weekend is going to be a crazy one in downtown St. Petersburg. Independence Day falls on Monday this year, which means we will have a three day weekend, and there are events and concerts all weekend long. First, this Friday is First Friday, with The Tempests performing live on the Big Sea Stage in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg. As always, the party goes from 5:30 until 10:00 pm, and the entire downtown area will be packed with revelers enjoying the party that made St. Petersburg famous.
Then Saturday, the Vans Warped Tour returns to Vinoy Park at 11 am, with a full day of bands including Falling In Reverse, Less Than Jake, New Found Glory, Reel Big Fish, Set It Off, We The Kings, Yellowcard, and dozens more. Tickets and complete information can be found at the official website here.
And then Monday, the official 4th of July fireworks show will be taking place down on the waterfront in downtown St. Petersburg. It is scheduled for 9:00 pm, but be aware that this is a weather permitting event, meaning it can start as early as 8:30 pm or as late as 10:00 pm if we get a little shower. You should try to get downtown a little early to get a good viewing spot.
All this adds up to crazy crowds and crazy traffic for the whole 4th of July weekend. Some people will try for free parking in the Old Northeast and downtown, but parking will be scarce, and lots of cars are going to get damaged and towed. Avoid all those hassles and call Downtown Yellow Taxi. We can get you safely in and out of the downtown area, without the expense and hassle of trying to park. Call us at 727 379-4440, and save our number in your phone so a fast, safe ride is always at your fingertips.
