Eau Gallie Arts District Spring-Summer Events
With the success of April in Paris, the Eau Gallie Arts District has launched his busy and ambitious spring and summer series of events. Their calendar of events includes EGAD EATS Food Truck & Fun Festivals on the fourth Sundays of each month on Highland Avenue from 5-8 p.m. It’s BYO chair and enjoy the great weather and traveling buffet featuring popular favorites and usually a new truck, too. May 6 First Friday’s theme is “Wine Women and Song” and will feature karaoke in the band shell. Grab your friends, bone up on your dance moves and sing or lip sync your heart out. EGAD encourages duos, groups and solo acts so work on your act now. What a great place to kick off somebody’s bachelorette party.

Tickets are on sale now at www.egadtours.com for $75 and include transportation and admission to a privately led tour of the Dali Museum, a bus tour of St. Pete’s incredible murals on Central Avenue, lunch, shopping, and back home in time for your Saturday night plans.
