I highly recommend Ribfest. It is happening in St. Pete's Vinoy Park.. draws huge fun crowds, lots of live music,(David Lee Roth, Night Ranger, Little Feat, Santana, Foreigner) and FOOD on a very nice bayfront park in downtown st petersberg. Nov 11-13th. http://www.ribfest.org/

Ybor City has their monthly Art Gallery Walk on Wednesday evening the 9th. www.ybor.org

The International Auto Show is at the Convention Center.

Check the calenders in www.tbo.com, and www.tampabay.com.

Tampan is right on. They will love that. There is also Music Fest on the Pier on the 13th, but you are probably leaving on the 13th.

We went to a concert in Vinoy park this past weekend and had a blast. Dress in layers as the daytime can be warm but Vinoy park is right on the water of the Bay and you can get chilly after the sun goes down and the breeze comes in off of the water.

Your best bet for parking if you are driving is the public parking garage by Baywalk - entrance is on 1st North. It's $5 (or at least it was last weekend) and is about as close as you can hope to get unless you are exceptionally lucky. It's a nice walk along Straub Park and the North Yacht Basin.

Here's a link to a great map of downtown St. Pete:

You might look into these possibilities:

Rent an electric boat: http://www.electricmarina.com/

These were featured on the news a few months ago and they are totally electric so they are supposed to be problem free and real easy to drive.

If you want to let someone else drive you might try a dolphin cruise: http://www.pierdolphincruises.net/

Stormy's is below the Hurricane Rooftop Bar (its on the 2nd floor) and both are open to all ages until 10pm. It is located on Pass-a-Grille Beach, a 1/2 mile south of the Don Cesar hotel at St. Pete Beach.
