Sunshine City Kids is your guide to a kid-friendly St. Petersburg. Through social media and an online community, we aim to keep local families connected to the community by sharing kid-friendly events, activities and opportunities to explore and be involved in all that our wonderful city has to offer! 

Vandi Carmella

With a love of all things local, Vandi started Sunshine City Kids in 2016. When she's not behind her camera or laptop, you'll find her out and about at nearby coffee shops or breweries, chasing her two kids (Alex, 6, and Rosie, 3) around town or working on some never-ending project with her husband Aaron in their Historic Uptown bungalow they share with their rescue lab, May.

Denielle Kennett

Mediocre mom, deprived of sleep, filled with potential -- Denielle is raising her locals (Lennon,3 and August, 1) in the Historic Uptown neighborhood alongside her husband, Joe, and two rescue dogs, Mumford and McCoy. She loves sleep (when she can get it) and enjoys writing, telling stories, and bouncing around the 'Burg with her family and friends.
