I work downtown.

Many homeless consider Gaslight Park home, mainly due to the proximity to Tampa Police Department as it keeps them safer than if they hung out on the fringes of downtown. Other than a couple of them who clearly have mental health issues, they don't bother anyone.

Not sure I would want them on the fringes of my wedding ceremonies, though.

Fair enough. I don't spend NEARLY as much time as I should in Downtown. Tonight is an exception. Vault of Souls and all.

If you haven't been before you'll be disappointed as far as the value for the entertainment. At least I was last year.

Media access. The value is amazing . And I really enjoyed it last year. It was leaps and bounds better this year, though.

I got married on the little bridge in Coachman Park, Clearwater. You were supposed to get a permit or something, but it was a small wedding, so we just showed up and did it.
