As part of this yearâ€™s St. Petersburgâ€™s New Yearâ€™s Last Night Festival, the public wrote their hopes and desires, or a New Yearâ€™s resolution, on the side of a 24-foot sculpture with a nautical theme and at 11 p.m. on New Yearâ€™s eve, the sculpture was set on fire as a metaphor for journey.
This years sculpture entitled “Peace Oâ€™ Eight” was created by local artists Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse. According to Mickett, â€œItâ€™s for all the wishes and good intentions to go out onto the universe.â€
The St. Petersburg Last Night Festival is one of Floridaâ€™s largest New Yearâ€™s Eve celebrations with a family-oriented, alcohol-free, and great fireworks display. Mark your calendars for this event for next New Years Eve, 2008.
