December 19th, 2020 Santa Claus is coming to St. Pete Beach!
December 19th will be a special day here in St. Pete Beach. Santa and his crew will be driving through our beach town beginning at 10am. The route can be found HERE, all are encouraged to create signs, decorate and celebrate in a safe way this year.
Parents and Guardians, here is a message especially for you!
To experience some extra special personalized magic from Santa Claus during the parade we invite you to make a fun custom sign for Santa on one side of the sign. On the other side write your kid/kids names large as possible in a big black marker. When Santa Claus is passing by your house and the kids are waving to him. You the parents will flip the sign around. It is important to make sure the kids can not see this happening. ( this is when you parents become Magicians and help with the magic) Santa will then personally say Merry Christmas to your kids with their names. Your kids will be so happy and shocked that Santa Claus knows their name/names personally. We look forward to creating this very nice and special experience for your kids during this holiday season.

Construction on the new SunRunner line is beginning in St. Pete Beach. The project only involves a few locations in the city and should have minimal impact on businesses, residents and visitors. However, since there will be some inconvenience for short periods of time for traffic and pedestrians, PSTA launched a construction information and engagement page for the community. Visitors will be able to see the construction timelines and the latest details about the project as well as individual station construction.
