St. Petersburg is hosting a local food and drink-honoring event called Localicious, which will run for an entire week. The idea for this event is pay tribute to locally grown food and locally made drinks.
This will be the second annual event held in St. Petersburg and this year's focus is to "unite restaurants, markets and community gardens." Local breweries and restaurants have created dishes and sample beverages that were designed specifically for this event. These offerings will only be available for a limited time during the week of the event. There will be a large list of events happening such as the Friday Food Truck Rally, a lavish Speakeasy and food-themed movies in the park. This extensive list will ensure all local preferences are met and each local vendor has the opportunity to participate.
The week-long Localicious event will take place on October 18 to 25, 2015. This event was created in an effort to appreciate local eats and continue help the local economy.
