WEIRD SCIENCE: Two-Headed Calf Fest
Friday's Two-Headed Calf Fest will celebrate the weirdness of St. Petersburg and the Museum of History's Alligators and Oddities exhibit, highlighted by a nearly 100-year-old two-headed calf. The baby beast with two heads — and six legs — was born in Safety Harbor in 1925 and survived six weeks. It was then stuffed by a taxidermist and donated to the museum. It has long been one of the more popular artifacts at the 95-year-old museum, which also houses a 3,000-year-old mummy left behind in 1922 by a boat captain who couldn't afford the local port fees. The mummy was accepted as payment. The festival will have live music and food trucks, and, in keeping with the oddities theme, real mermaids and alligators, carnival side shows, a costume contest, craft beer and museum admission. It runs 6-10 p.m. Friday at 335 Second Ave. NE, St. Petersburg. $30-40. (727) 894-1052. spmoh.com.
