Come show us your spirit, and we’ll show you ours! St. Petersburg Paranormal Investigation and the Suntan Art Center invites the public to attend Spectral Musings, A History, Ghost and Art Tour. The event will offer an opportunity to learn more about the historic Don Vista building, the older and smaller sister to the Don Cesar. Thomas Rowe lived in the Don Vista during the hotel’s construction; the building has also served as administrative offices, a bank, offices for a federal bureau, and even housed a fire truck! However, there is also something else contained within: three mysterious presences. Participants are invited to see if they can catch a glimpse of the Running Man, the Hostess, or the Old Man, each with their own spot in the Don Vista. Could one of the presences be Thomas Rowe checking on his former home? Is he responsible for the reports of mysterious footsteps heard from time to time?
This year, participants will gather to learn a little of the history of the building before heading out on a guided tour. Seasoned paranormalist and professor, Dr. Brandy Stark, will host brief discussions on ghost investigations. Members of St. Petersburg Paranormal Investigation will be on hand to help with questions, describe their experiences, and guide the tour. Tours will start at 7 PM and run every half hour. The final tours starts at 8:30 PM. Tours are designed to be family friendly and for people of all ages.
The Suntan Art Center will be presenting art featuring the theme of the Autumn Harvest The Suntan Art Center will be presenting art featuring the theme of the Autumn Harvest. Suntan Art Center artists will also be on site to discuss the art, and works will be available for purchase.
