All photos taken at the Morean Center for Clay on March 25, 2017.

The 2017 incarnation of Don't Stop St. Pete Music & Arts Festival has come and gone, and the community — especially Morean Center for Clay's old train station — is much better for it. The fest — which donated a dollar from each ticket sold to People for Protecting Peace River — spent the afternoon and evening welcoming over two dozen bands to four stages, and we've got 70 photos to show you why Don't Stop St. Pete is the people's party.

Listen to a playlist, and have a look at the photos, below.
