Corvettes at the Pier; Rays Play the Trop

You don't need to look far for something to do this holiday weekend, with the St. Pete Pier offering a weekend of entertainment and the Rays at home Monday.

The Suncoast Corvette Club kicks off the weekend Saturday with a day-long
display of Corvettes of all years and models.

Corvettes on The Pier will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and features  an opportunity to study the shiny machines, talk to car owners, and browse  vendors.

The band Easy Street will entertain car aficionados during the show before Hunks of Funk takes the stage, beginning at 8 p.m.

On Sunday, relax  with the sounds of Late Night Brass in the Courtyard by the Bay from 1 to 4 p.m.

Monday, everyone's invited to get their groove on at the  family-friendly, free Fall Salsa Celebration led by DJ Greg Muevete' Richardson from 5 to 9 p.m. Visit www.stpetepier.com for details.

Labor Day Is Baseball Day

The Rays open game one of a three-game home stand on Monday against the New  York Yankees at 1:10 p.m., looking to clinch a wild card spot when the
regular  season ends. If you can't make Monday's game, there are still two more  opportunities to watch the Rays on Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:10 p.m.

Baseball fans are encouraged to allow plenty of time to arrive at Tropicana
Field, locate parking in one of the 7,000 convenient on-site spaces, and
find  their seats before the first pitch.

If on-site lots fill, parking is also available in more than 100 licensed surface parking lots surrounding the ballpark. The privately-owed and operated lots have applied for permits to provide fans with legal paid parking during Rays games. The lots are clearlymarked with signage featuring a capital "P," lot number and city ordinance number and are the only licensed parking areas for fan parking outside of Tropicana Field but still inside the half-mile radius.

More information on  parking at or around Tropicana Field is available at

As an alternative, fans may also park along the waterfront and catch the
free  baseball shuttle, which features convenient pickup and drop-off locations at the corner of Central Ave. and 2nd Street S. (under the pedestrian bridge).

At Tropicana Field, the shuttle drop-off is located on 16th Street S. just
south of 3rd Avenue S. Shuttles begin service 90 minutes prior to the start of
each game and run approximately every 10-15 minutes, ending service one hour after the final inning or post-game concert. Disability accommodations,
including vehicles with wheelchair lifts, will be utilized at every game.

To request particular aids or services pursuant to disability laws, please
contact Tropicana Field or the city of St. Petersburg's Community Affairs
Division at 727-893-7357 or 727-892-5259 TDD/TTY. Additional shuttle
information, including a route map, can be found at
