Team Novaween He11even at historic DTSP venue NOVA 535, in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida

Friday October 20, 2017 brought our annual Halloween Costume Party Novaween He11even once again to historic DTSP venue NOVA 535;. Our doors opened at 9:00 pm and we ended this always unpredictably wild party to a close at 3:00 am. Those 6 hours are what you, our guests, got to enjoy. But the process of creating and producing this most fun of events took weeks and months, by an entire team of wonderfully talented people. Team Novaween He11even. Here is their story, and many incredible photos from this process and evening. The remainder of the photos will be found in the next few upcoming blogs, so be patient and enjoy! If we post them all at once we may just overload your senses and device loading time!Team Novaween He11even at historic DTSP venue NOVA 535 downtown St. Pete, Florida

NOVAween 10 Ignited The Spirit of Halloween

Halloween may have already passed this year, but I think we’re all still celebrating the excitement Downtown St. Pete shared at NOVAween 10. The unique and historic event space, NOVA 535, hosts an annual Halloween extravaganza and 2016 marked the tenth anniversary of this memorable spooky soiree. I’m Erika Cain, Entertainment Coordinator at NOVA 535 and Content Creator at our sister company, DowntownStPete.com. As I have hosted and provided entertainment for the party for the past three years (huge thanks to owner, Michael S. Novilla, for keeping me on board!), I can say one thing for certain: NOVAween is not your ordinary Halloween Party. The event itself has transpired to a well-anticipated ball. Why? The energy within the venue is always beyond positive and everyone has a permanent grin on their face when they are at the party. Perhaps it’s the great tunes that brings everyone together or NOVA’s multiple full-liquor bars that does the trick. Whatever it may be – it has become DTSP’s (aka DownTown St. Pete) favorite Halloween Party!

A Lively Welcome to Novaween 10

Well, the brick road isn’t yellow and the destination isn’t Oz, but it’s a marvelous brick path to unique venue NOVA 535 in Downtown St. Pete, Florida. As this gorgeous space is primarily known for creating custom private events and stunning weddings, NOVA also throws wicked public parties for everyone to drink, dance and have a ball at. NOVAween is absolutely no exception to this. We celebrated the tenth anniversary of this spooktacular Halloween bash and the thrills began as soon as the ghouls and goblins of DTSP entered the candle-lit bamboo courtyard. Novaween 10 was full of treats for guests to enjoy and the first ingredient of the entire cauldron was the red carpet treatment as Barry Lively snapped photos of guests sporting their devilish disguises as they entered the party. Talk about a lively welcome to Novaween!!
