The old St. Pete Pier

Well, this is good news!

I feel like its been so long since they tore it down….but the new pier in St. Pete is going to open on May 30th!   I am soooo excited to see this!!

It’s been under construction for three years…but seems way longer.   The City of St. Petersburg’s long-awaited $92 million St. Pete Pier will officially make its debut on Saturday, May 30.

St. Pete Mayor Rick Krisemen posted a video to YouTube. and said:   “The future has arrived in the form of a 26-acre pier district. And now it’s yours to enjoy.”

The site will open at 10 a.m., and includes the $1 million wooden playground with a splash pad, a fishing deck, a local market vendor area, several restaurants, a 3,000-square-foot interactive classroom and a $1.5 million sculpture.  Wait….a sculpture that costs a million?

The Pier is free to the public.
