St. Petersburg, Fl – In Sarasota, there's a really cool concert called Piano Grand. And they really do-- do piano in a big way. Five pianists will take the Sarasota Opera House stage with five Steinway & Sons grand pianos. The artists will perform a variety of pieces arranged for ten hands. The concert starts at 3:00 p.m.
If your hands like poking through home décor, then you need to hit the Shabby Chic Vintage Market. This is an annual event at the Tampa Garden Club. There will be antique dealers, original art, handmade items, and floral arrangements. It's both inside and outside the Historic Garden Club on Bayshore Boulevard.
A different type of garden sprouts in Tarpon Springs today as that community goes from Greek to German to celebrate Oktoberfest. There will be German food, oompah music, a costume contest, and of course a Bier Garden.
In St. Pete a growing movement makes it a great afternoon to bike, skate, or stroll. Several streets in the downtown area around Mirror Lake will be closed off to cars from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. It's called Open Streets and cities across the world have been doing it. In addition, there's a family festival with pet-friendly vendors, music and more at Williams Park.
