Each month, the City of St. Petersburg has a newsletter called St. Pete Extra that shares updates on new programs, exciting upcoming events, important local news, and a wealth of insider secrets on the Sunshine City. Inside this monthly update, we always find great nuggets that we can use to make living in St. Pete better and more fun for ourselves, our neighbors, our families, and our friends.

With their permission, we are going to share some of each month’s highlights in this space, which are chock full of good info. For example, this month’s edition highlights the new St. Pete bike map and guide the city has created. Check out their website for the full list, and subscribe there to have it delivered to your inbox every month.

Who doesn’t like fireworks?

Join us for St. Pete Pier’s The Fourth for patriotic festivities and yes, fireworks! Details to come at stpetepier.org .

For the early birds, the 2024 Pier Run is happening in the morning on July 4th at the St. Pete Pier. Find details and registration at stpeterunfest.org/st-pete-pier-run .

Keep the Sunshine City bright

Help the Sunshine City by not using fertilizer this summer! Every year, increased rainfall in the summer months can cause nutrients from fertilizer to reach bodies of water and lead to environmental issues and water quality problems. We can help our environment through this season in many ways, including partaking in the fertilizer ban from June 1 to September 30.

More information at stpete.org/Fertilizer. 

Can’t put a price on being prepared

Hurricane season is officially here! Do you know your evacuation zone? Have supplies? Do you live in a low-lying area and need tips for flooding?

Be ready before the storm by visiting stpete.org/Hurricane.
