St. Petersburg, Florida – Here are some choice events for the week of June 23, 2014.
Rays players will strut their stuff for a cause on Wednesday, June 25. The Rays on the Runway fashion event takes place at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort. Rays players, along with wives and girlfriends, will be modeling fashions from Tommy Bahama and Penelope T Boutique. Besides the fashion show, there's also a meet-and-greet with the players and a silent auction. The event benefits the Children's Dream Fund, a Tampa group that grants dreams for seriously ill children.
It's Pride Weekend in St. Pete. Friday kicks it off with a concert by Mary Lambert, Saturday brings a night parade, and the LGBT celebration wraps up on Sunday with the Pride Festival.
And on weekends this summer, kids can ride the rails for free at the Florida Railroad Museum. The diesel engine excursions take place in Parrish in Manatee County.
