Florida Botanical Gardens Holiday Light Display in Largo Florida

Published on 12/14/22: Cheers to Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo for this incredible light display! Anyone familiar? How about their huge Singing Tree?! Ha. I’ll discuss that one in my upcoming video post.

Before I review our visit to Florida Botanical Garden’s Light Display…. If you want one of the Christmas Story “Leg Lamp” 20 inch replicas, make sure you subscribe to the new LovingStPete YouTube channel! (FREE of course) The drawing is this Friday evening. One video already has 5K views in < 4 days, yowzers. However, from a giveaway perspective, only 30 people have entered, great odds on this one! You simply need a Google or Gmail account to subscribe. Takes 20 seconds.😊 I appreciate the support, as do the small businesses who you know I’ll post about in time! You know you want a glowing leg lamp in your window! #JustDoIt

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
