ST. PETE BEACH - On March 2, Gulf Beaches Historical Museum plays host once again to a celebration of Island Culture that can only be found in Pinellas County's south beach communities.
Join County and City officials as 20 years of all volunteer service to the community is commemorated with a street festival and other activities. The event begins at 9 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m.
Enjoy music by the Eckerd College Lifelong Learning Institute's New Horizons Band and the St. Pete Shanties, who sing the songs that sailors, fishermen, and dockworkers sang with a special Florida emphasis.
The Florida Suncoast MG Car Club will show collectors cars. The car club, organized in 1980, is the most active British car club in the Tampa Bay area.
Special character appearance by legendary hermit Silas Dent and walking tours led by costumed docents round out planned events.
Visitors are invited to view the new exhibit, a tribute to the now defunct St Pete Beach Police Department and see the Museum's version of "officer friendly."
Artists, craft and treasure vendors, including the Museum's "Treasure Table" will be available.
Gulf Beaches Historical Museum is at 115 10th Ave., Pass-a-Grille, St. Pete Beach. Admission free.
