Saturday Feb 1st in Williams Park, St Petersburg, Florida
11:00am to 7:00pm
William’s is the city’s first park and it takes up an entire city block between 4th and 3rd Streets North and between 2nd and 1st Avenues North. Founded in 1888 and originally named “City Park,” it was renamed Williams Park in honor of the co-founder of St. Petersburg, John Constantine Williams Sr. The other co-founder was Peter Demens (Petrovitch Demenscheff).
