The FREE “IN THE DIP” Eating & Drinking Festival is the biggest event of LOCALICIOUS Eat LOCAL Drink LOCAL Week and it’s taking place on National Food Day! We’ve called it “IN THE DIP” as where it’s being held is the field that the City of St. Pete used to refer to as “The Dip” (across from the ManhattanCASINO ). We’ve been granted special permission to use the land for this one-off event as this area will soon become the St. Petersburg Commerce Park.
