Enjoyed free parking at Pier Park, adults litter the park when leaving, so the High school Students stay and pick up the trash I am assuming since they Hire them to Monitor the trash cans, Great Example adults ????

Our visits to Seabreeze Jazz Festival are annual. There have been many improvements made to the Aaron Bessant Park and each year brings more pleasure to our visits.

Have seen 2 Mardi gras free concerts here and enjoyed them both. This year it featured Aaron Neville and was excellent. Take your own chair or blanket if you want to be comfy watching the show.
