The Historic Old Northeast is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in St. Pete, but during spooky season it is both spectacular and terrifying. Residents throughout the neighborhood deck out their front yards with decor that ranges from the family-friendly to the nightmarish. Nowhere is that more evident than between 17th and 18th Avenues Northeast, between Locust Street and Beach Drive.
One resident, who had just finished his ever growing Monster Mash theme, anticipates he’ll have more than 4,000 visitors on Halloween. Their Monster Mash idea has grown and evolved over the last 5 years. This Halloween, they’ll have a live DJ set from 5pm-9pm on 18th Avenue NE between Locust and Poplar Street. Just in case you want learn a bit more about the neighborhood, WATCH this history tour with local historian Monica Kile.
Below you’ll see just some of the most astonishing homes decorated for Halloween in the Sunshine City.
The wildest Halloween decorations in the Old Northeast
We spent so much time wondering if we could decorate for Halloween, we forgot to ask if we should. As far as this home goes, we are glad the family decided to go Jurassic for the holidays.
Anyone else forever traumatized by the film Arachnophobia? Just me? Anyways someone should let Aragog know his children escaped the Forbidden Forest.
Club Monster Mash is the most exclusive club in town. I hear the cocktails are to die for.
Kids in the neighborhood hand painted all the little doorways for the monsters to use. I think Mike and Sully are set to hit their scare quota this Halloween.
We are feline spooky in the Historic Old Northeast.
I think you should play it safe and give this Dead and Breakfast a 5-star review, otherwise it might be your final resting place. That’s the life of a super host.
Prepare for some squelching. A beast is rising from 20,000 leagues under the sea.
