Pass-A-Grille 2012 Holiday Boat Parade

This year Pass-A-Grille and Tierra Verde are hosting their own Lighted Boat Parade and best of all it is a week later than the other beaches so we can get to see them all.

The 2012 Pass-A-Grille Holiday boat parade is going to be on December 15, 2012.

2012 Beach Boat Parade

The boats will leave Merry Pier on Pass-A-Grille at dusk and work their way to Tierra Verde and back. This is destined to become yet another must see holiday parade and become a great family tradition for the locals.

Pass-A-Grille is a magical historic island and sits at the southern end of St. Pete Beach.

Where to watch the Pass-A-Grille Boat Parade

One of the best places to watch the parade is sure to be along the sea wall near Merry Pier. There is plenty of space for the best view and is where the locals will be.

Bring your family, a chair and a warm coat and enjoy Pass-A-Grille’s and Tierra Verde’s first holiday boat parade on December 15th, 2012.

St Pete Beach Meteor Shower Watching August 2012

St Pete Beach Meteor Shower Watching August 2012

Head to St Pete Beach this weekend and you stand a great chance of watching an amazing Meteor Shower.

If you love watching shooting stars then look up between 11 pm and 4 am on August 11, 12 and 13th 2012 for the best opportunity for seeing the Perseids Meteor showers.

Best places to watch the Meteor shower near St Pete Beach

Head to the beach!  I am going to go to an area away from the larger hotels because the darker it is the better chance we have of seeing this amazing display of nature. What better place to watch a Meteor shower than on the sand at St Pete Beach.

Head out to sea! If you are lucky enough to own a boat then this would be an amazing way to star gaze and get all the darkness you need.

No boat? There are many places that do sunset boat trips. I want to give a big thumbs up and shout out to Dolphin Landings Charter Boat Center – Captain Dan plans some amazing sail boat trips that harmonize with natures wonders. See if he still has room for his evening Shooting star trips or ask about the blue moon trip on August 31, 2012. Call: 727 360 7411 for trip information.

Corey Avenue – browse the shops, stop for a drink at one or two of the bars and then keep walking away from the stores (past the theater) to the end. It is pretty dark by the water at this time of night (early morning).

Find your own little place of darkness and if you can stay awake long enough enjoy natures display of shooting stars this weekend on beautiful St. Pete Beach.

P.S. – August 31st is the night to see a blue moon!

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber All Over St Pete Beach

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber All Over St Pete Beach

The movie Spring Breakers is currently being shot on and around St. Pete Beach and people are spotting Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber everywhere.

With our beaches already full of fun-loving spring breakers we now have the excitement of film crews and of course the celebrities.

Seems you can not go far without spotting either Selena Gomez (with or without) boyfriend Justin Bieber or co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson.

This video was taken on Corey Avenue, St Pete Beach, FL during the filming of the new movie Spring Breakers.

Just among my small circle of friends there have been many sightings of the stars including:

Selena and Justin were spotted last week eating ice-cream in Treasure Island.

Selena and Vanessa popped in for a nice cool beverage at the Undertow Beach Bar on St Pete Beach

Selena was seen walking on the beach – numerous times.

Do you want to see Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber or Vanessa Hudgens?

Just drive along the Gulf Blvd. from Pass-A-Grille, St. Pete Beach to Treasure Island and look out for parked trucks and signs saying “crew”. That means they are filming in that area. Now just look for a crowd of young people (usually in bikinis) and the stars are not far away. Hang around where they are filming and you might even end up in the movie Spring Breakers.

Do you want to be an extra in the movie Spring Breakers?

I have heard (according to CBS Tampa) that they are looking for around 500 college kids to be in a shoot on Wednesday 21, 2012. Try emailing with a photo and you may have a chance. Oh, you have to be a resident of the Tampa bay area, over 18, and look great in beach wear. Good luck 🙂
