One year ago this coming Tuesday, the St. Pete Pier opened to the public. The anniversary is being celebrated with a weekend full of events on and around the $93 million structure, culminating in a 5 p.m. party that’ll wrap with a new twist on the fireworks finale: 300 drones equipped with LED lights, will create flying formations across 500 feet across Tampa Bay sky.

Tuesday will also mark the debut of “Bending Arc,” the elevated net sculpture created by internationally-renowned artist Janet Echelman.
