Light It Up Clearwater: Ringing In the New Year With a Beachfront Bang

You couldn’t ask for a better New Year’s Eve party than Light It Up Clearwater, which sees some superb pyrotechnics along one gorgeous stretch of Gulf of Mexico waterfront.

Clearwater Beach can claim to some of the very best sunsets in the entire country, which makes for quite the pre-show entertainment. Not every New Year’s Eve fireworks show offers sand between your toes, but ours does.

The Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce presents Light It Up Clearwater each year thanks to awesome local sponsors. With great food and drink and an absolutely unbeatable backdrop for a fireworks spectacular, it’s absolutely a bucket-list holiday soiree. U.S. News Travel has named the event one of the top five kid-friendly New Year’s Eve celebrations in the country!

The fireworks erupt at midnight, to say good-bye to 2019 and welcome to 2020!

Get all the details on enjoying the show here at the official website’s parking and directions information clearinghouse.

Boutique Hotel for the Savor St. Pete Festival

If you’re coming to the Tampa Bay area for this year’s Savor St. Pete Festival—the newly renamed incarnation of what used to be called Clearwater Beach Uncorked—we invite you to enjoy convenient boutique-chic accommodations here at Hotel Cabana!

The event—marketed as “the hippest, most exciting two-day food, wine, and craft beer festival on Florida’s West Coast”—takes place Saturday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 3rd, so now is the time to lock down your festival tickets and your lodgings at our gulf island hotel on Clearwater Beach!

The 2019 Savor St. Pete Festival

While this is the first running under the Savor St. Pete Festival banner, it’s the eighth annual edition of the foodie bonanza previously called Clearwater Beach Uncorked, and managed as a sister soiree to Cocoa Beach Uncorked on the other side of the Florida peninsula.

Savor St. Pete Festival brings some of the top chefs, brewers, restaurateurs, and sommeliers from greater Tampa Bay to North Straub Park right along the bayfront—plus droves of gastronomes, epicureans, oenophiles, and craft-beer aficionados.

The heart of the festival is the Grand Tasting Village, open from 1 to 4 PM to General Admission ticket holders and from noon to 4 PM for those with VIP tickets.

The theme for this year’s Savor St. Pete Festival is “Arts. Eats. Beats.” Featured chefs include Todd Fisher of Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Jim Hendry and Anthony LoGerfo of Aprons, and Luis Reyes of Sysco Food Service.

Among the festival highlights are the Savor St. Pete Best Chef Competition on Saturday, which showcases contestants pulling out all the culinary stops, and the filming of two episodes of the show Cooking With Rock Stars, which spotlights ‘80s rockers and some of their personal recipes. Saturday’s episode will star Brian Howe, the lead singer for Bad Company from 1986 to 1994, while Sunday’s features Martha Davis of The Motels; both film at 1:30 PM on the respective days.

Check out the official Savor St. Pete Festival FAQ here, and obtain your General Admission or VIP tickets here.
