This year marks the 43rd anniversary of the blockbuster sunrise sale in beautiful Downtown St. Pete, which has been featured in the New York Times and often referred to as “St. Petersburg’s Largest Pajama Party.”
Beginning at 6:43 a.m. and continuing throughout the day, more than 40 DTSP and nearby St. Petersburg merchants and businesses will offer doorbuster sales and special offers during the Sunrise Sale, including more than ten participants new to the event this year. Shoppers are encouraged to wear their pajamas and are often treated to extra discounts or small gifts. As part of the event that sees downtown filled at dawn with yellow flags, bright balloons and eager shoppers, the DBA will be collecting wish list items for CASA (Community Action Stops Abuse).
There will be free cake at the main tent, located on the lawn of the Museum of Fine Arts, and several restaurants are offering incredible breakfast specials to hungry shoppers. The event is open to the public, and maps will be available to guide people to participating businesses. Anxious shoppers can follow the Sunrise Sale announcements on Facebook at www.facebook.com/DBAStPete. Special offers will be highlighted leading up to the event.
