This month we pay tribute to the urban legends of our area.  One of the classic stories that ties to St. Petersburg is that of the Mini Lights legend.  In recent years, this has gotten some new attention and respect.  Here are three ways that you can support local and see the evolution of this fascinating tale:

SPIRITS of St. Petersburg Urban Legend Page:  Mini Lights
This is a collection of stories that have been told to me over the years.  Notice the different names for the phenomena (Merry Light, Mini Light, Mennonite).  If you've heard this story, let us know and we'll add your voice to those collected!

Mini Lights the Movie:
Local Artist John Vitale is working on a movie featuring this phenomena.  Support this endeavor with some financial backing or check in on the progress of this project at the Mini Lights Movie website!

Eerie Florida:  Get the book!
Local author Mark Muncy has released a new book that contains this urban legend and more.  Check out Eerie Florida and his first grand release events!  It has hit the top of Amazon's list!
