ST. PETERSBURG – Florida’s oldest and largest First Night celebration will take place Friday, Dec. 31, 5:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. throughout downtown.

Music, dance, arts and surprises will be presented on 30 different stages. Venues will host blues, jazz, Galactic shuffleboard, gospel, chamber music, marionettes, Flamingo Bandango, Cajun, geographies, steel drums, Didgeridoo, Bubble Blast, movies under the stars and glass.

At 11:30 p.m., Hurricane Man, containing the names of Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne, will be burned along with any and all regrets pinned on him by First Night participants.

With two different fireworks displays and 30 stages, First Night St. Petersburg will present an evening of alcohol-free, family-oriented festivities. Early birds, children and families enjoying the Bayfront Medical Center FirstKids events at The Arts Center will see the Ruden McCloskey FirstFireworks show at 8:45 p.m. at Central Avenue and Seventh Street.

“We added the early fireworks to accommodate the needs of families that want to bring their children down to enjoy the FirstKids activities,” said Pat Mason, executive director of First Night.

FinaleFireworks will ring in 2005 over the spectacular St. Petersburg waterfront at midnight.

Admission buttons are $8 adults, $5 kids and $10 the day of the event and are available at The Pier, Publix Northeast, City Hall in Tyrone Square Mall, Mahaffey Theater Box Office, the Arts Center, and other downtown locations or by visiting www.firstnightstpete.com.
