Who remember's the old pier?
Children deserve to celebrate the new year too, and the city of St. Petersburg has got its kiddos covered with 8 p.m. early fireworks.

St. Pete Pier’s New Year’s Eve bash is back for more family fun and fireworks to kick off 2023. The new year celebration starts Saturday, Dec. 31 at 3 p.m. and is free to attend.

There will be live music, food and more, all at Spa Bach Park on the St. Pete Pier, located at 800 2nd Ave. NE, St. Petersburg.

The event is family friendly with plenty of kids activities, games and a Winter Beach Ice Skating Rink for those craving the true winter cold. There will also be live DJs on the LED-lit mainstage, a giant disco ball, local food trucks (like Main Street Boys Empanadas and Maggie on the Move Mediterranean), vendors, a full champagne bar and the area’s biggest fireworks show sponsored by the city.
The adult firework show starts at midnight and will be visible from all of downtown St. Pete's waterfront parks.

St. Pete Pier’s New Year’s Eve 2022 requires no ticket purchase for entry. More event details can be found at
