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!!
