Along with our fabulous Lock and Key Holiday Party, we were notified late last night of the Jingle Bell Run that will be occurring in Downtown St Pete, within the vicinity of the venue, Fresco's. The run starts at 7:30 and goes until 9ish, and people will be running/ jogging by the venue is some quite hilarious outfits, so, it will be a funny sight!
That said, this does effect the traffic conditions as well as parking limitations as many streets will be closed due to the run. If you get to Fresco’s early (5:30-6:00) you will be fine, as you should not incur any of the road closings, so this would be optimal for you, however, below is are directions for those who will be coming at regular time:
Take 275-> the pier exit (exit 23a if going 275 south, 23 if coming 275 North)-> follow to 4th ave -> make a right on 4th Street North, and follow signs for open parking garages or street parking. BEACH DRIVE WILL BE CLOSED. If you are unable to find parking, there will be several police officers available to direct you to parking. You will then want to walk to the Venue which is straight down Second Ave. North on the corner of 2nd ave and Bayshore blvd. Basically, on the right hand side, once you get onto the pier.
See you tonight!
