The 2000 Block of Central Avenue in St Petersburg is planning its first Oktoberfest celebration, complete with music, food, craft beer, art, shopping and entertainment. The party takes place starting at 6 pm Saturday, Oct. 11.
The event, organized by Dean Liston and Dustin Van Fleet of Central Oddities and Funk Living, brings together neighboring businesses Necessories Gallery & Boutique, Sly Bar, All Things Change, ARTPool Gallery, Intuition Salon & Spa and Davidson Fine Art for the free community party.
Central Oddities and FUNK Living (2055 Central Ave.) will be donating 10 percent of all sales proceeds to CASA, the St. Petersburg nonprofit that offers shelter, counseling and other lifesaving services to survivors of domestic violence and their children.
