St. Pete Buzz -St. Petersburg Fl.Pinellas Park Better Block initiative was so well-organized. There was a well-balanced mix of items to purchase, food, music, desserts, drum circle, horse carriage as the trolley, and more. definitely all ages were able to enjoy. The City of Pinellas initiated a new sense of community in an area well needed. This is great example on how to develop a “sense of community and pride” at all levels.
“If you are not familiar with the area , Pinellas Park was considered ruff” said artist Derek Donnelly.” I grew up in this neighborhood, and it was not nice”. “I am so excited to see the transformation”.Derek Donnelly is an artist that has contributed grandly to the development of art awareness at all levels in the St. Petersburg area. He is a Burg-er, St. Petersburg-er that is. Staying true to his craft and developing community through the arts!
