City of St. Petersburg's theme song
Recently, The City of St. Petersburg held a contest for an official city song. A winner was selected from among 31 submissions. However, On May 21, 1953, St. Petersburg Mayor Samuel G. Johnson made a motion and the City Council voted to adopt "I Always Walk in Sunshine" written by Emeric Laza as the city song. St. Petersburg Times journalist, Andy Boyle, accompanied by former Times journalist and Paladium Theater executive director, Paul Wilborn sings Emeric Lazar's "I Always Sing in Sunshine."
