ST. PETERSBURG -- Southern home cooking, art and music are on tap from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at A Taste of 22nd Street S.

The food festival takes place at the St. Petersburg Clay Co., 420 22nd St. S. The event, billed as a non-alcohol, family occasion, is free. Those who attend can purchase food from restaurants that will set up booths.

Atwater's, a longtime 22nd Street S presence before it moved in 1977 to Dr. M.L. King (Ninth) Street S and 22nd Avenue, will be among the featured restaurants.

Voter registration also is scheduled, and clothing fashions will be for sale. Several kinds of art will be on display, including pottery produced at the St. Petersburg Clay Co., which opened in July in the old Seaboard Coastline railroad depot. The company has been establishing itself as a major presence on 22nd Street S, which is the focus of several redevelopment projects.

Sunday's festival will be the third community event in the past month for St. Petersburg Clay Co., which will hold its grand opening on Dec. 7.

"We moved down here and we consider ourselves part of the community, and the community has been very warm and gracious. Any small thing we can do to help its effort, if we can do it, we'll do it," said Russ Gustafson-Hilton, a partner in the company.

For information about the festival, call 322-8129.
