Festival/Fundraiser: Taste of Pinellas

Friday, May 30

Life is all about food and music. Add beer to the equation and you have one helluva good time. And if you can eat, drink, dance and help out the youngsters at All Children's Hospital, you have the recipe for a pretty fun-filled weekend. At the 22nd annual Taste of Pinellas, you can gorge yourself silly by sampling the fare of nearly 40 local restaurants and wash it all down with some frosty beverages from the beer garden. Bring the kids and let them hop around in the bouncy house or take them to the water slide at the Kid's Zone. Among the musical acts scheduled to perform are classic hair-rock icons Eddie Money and Rick Springfield, as well as Grammy Award-winning blues pop star Jonny Lang, with a full-fledged fireworks show to follow Lang's performance on Saturday night.
