ST. PETERSBURG — From demonstrations of a Brazilian martial arts form to a painting on cellophane, visitors had plenty to take in Saturday at Localtopia in Williams Park.
"We're just trying to breathe life back into the community with some art," said Sebastian Coolidge, an artist working on cellophane.
One of the many crowd pleasers at the festivities was Capoeira.
Just what is Capoeira, you ask?
It is a Brazilian martial art that combines acrobatics, dance and music. Speed and power are important and it is often considered a game.
The free event featured a skate ramp, stage entertainment, games for children and arts exhibits.
