January 14:  Investigation


February 11:  Celebrate Valentween with us at Books at Park Place!


February 18: 6 - 9 PM, Patty and Friends Antique Village, 1241 Dr. MLK Jr. St. North, St. Petersburg



  • The SPIRITS of St. Petersburg/St. Petersburg Paranormal Investigation are hosting a free ghost tour at Patty's and Friends Antiques. The paranormal investigators have studied the location for three years and have offered pop up tours of the site for the past 3 years. Prior to each tour is a new investigation just to get in touch with our REALLY old friends, or in case we find someone new. This is free and open to the public. The SPIRITS will also have booklets on hand for the Suntan Art Center haunting called "Spectral Musings". Booklets cost $3 each and support funding for SPIRITS/SPPI.

    Tour times: We are encouraging folks to come and walk through the store to see what you sense, and where. There will be three tours through the night, and each tour should last about 25 - 30 minutes. Tour times are 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30. The last tour closes the event.

    We are also celebrating Valentween, a holiday created by team founder Brandy Stark. It's a Hallowe'en - Valentine's Day mashup holiday (think Halloween Part II). It features romantic/horror ("Addams Family", "Corpse Bride", "Little Shop of Horrors") themes but is an all around great time. Help us to make the holiday stronger -- and make it a national event! :)
