Ten great places were on tour in 2012, including the St. Petersburg High School built in 1926, as well as a Designer Show Home featuring the interior design of some of Tampa Bay's best design studios. While many of the homes on tour were bungalows, typical of Historic Kenwood, there are will also be mid-century modern, Mission, Tudor and Minimalist Traditional style homes. Two of the City’s Looper trolleys helped visitors, who may have needed an extra lift, circumnavigate the neighborhood.

St. Petersburg High School - St. Petersburg High School was billed as the nation's first "Million Dollar High School." It's Mediterranean Spanish Revival style, interior "Junior" and "Senior" Courtyards, as well as its archives and memorabilia fascinated and delighted visitors. St. Petersburgh High School is one of St. Petersburg's iconic buildings, and this was a unique opportunity to view it from the inside.
Designer Show Home – The Designer Show Home was a 1400 sq. ft. Tudor style home. It had been recently renovated with a new kitchen and bath. The Design Coordinator, Kenwood resident Lisa Berardo, called upon local area designers and artists to turn the home into an artistic Designer Show Home. The Designer Show Home was dedicated to illustrating the theme of BungalowFest - which is a celebration of art and architecture - under one roof.
