'Pelicans on Parade' through downtown
The PinkCricket Center for Arts Education presents "Pelicans on Parade" at downtown businesses.
The 18 fiberglass pelicans have a wingspan of more than 6 feet, and each one has been painted to be unique. Local businesses and organizations are hosting the pelicans throughout the week.
On Saturday, the pelicans will be displayed at St. Pete Clay Co.'s annual Oktoberbest. The pelicans will be auctioned off, and proceeds from the parade and auction benefit programs at the PinkCricket Center.
