The haunted bazaar is free to attend. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at 620 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg. thestudio@620.org.

Bikers can find out whose chopper is the baddest in the Vintage Motorcyle Contest. A vintage swimwear contest will show who has the best old duds. A vintage car show will transport you to a time when automobiles were works of art. Speaking of art, artists including Chad Mize, Stephen Palladino and Bekky Beukes embellished motorcyle helmets for an art show. Tunes by DJ Sugarbear and the Hot Rod Hornets set the mood for a swing dance-off. Free to attend. 1-6 p.m. at 421 Fourth Ave. N.
