April is Earth Month and that means its time for one of my favorite local events, the Green Thumb Festival! The festival is all day April 28th and 29th (Sat. & Sun.) at Walter Fuller Park in St. Petersburg, which is located at 7891 26th Ave N. The event features local plant vendors, a flower show, recycling rally, a butterfly tent, free mulch and a food court. For more details click here.
Last year that had some very cool stands with owls, fish and butterflies! This is definitely a family-friendly event. Though, it is outside and requires a good amount of walking, so this FL insurance agent recommends wearing comfortable shoes, sunscreen and plenty of drinking water. If you plan on shopping, don’t forget to bring some reusable bags and a wagon, if you think you may leave with bigger plants.
