Crowds of people gathered downtown Saturday for the sunshine and cool breezes, and to celebrate the 100th birthday of St. Petersburg's waterfront parks. From Coffee Pot Bayou to Albert Whitted Airport, people strolled and enjoyed the free festivities. Local bands were positioned throughout the "Party in the Parks" event, which also featured dance performances, arts and crafts, food vendors and the dedication of the North Bay Trail and human sundial. "I love this," said Dawn Overton of Clearwater, who brought her two children to the event. "I plan on being here most of the day."
