I received two VIP tickets to Guavaween in exchange for hosting this giveaway and writing a review. As always, my opinions are all mine.
Are you in the Tampa area? Do you have a distinct lack of (awesome) plans this Saturday night? Well, I have a solution for you!
Guavaween is back. For 2014 it’s been recreated into a Voodoo Carnival at the Cuban Club! Now I really wish I could have binge watched Season 4 of American Horror Story last weekend… because YES there will be a freak show. As if just plain people watching won’t be worth the trip. 🙂
I have to admit, I’ve never been to Guavaween before. I love a good party and all, but this one always sounded a little over the top and uncontained. But not this year!
This year Guavaween is at the Cuban Club, the same location that The Summer of Rum Festival was, which I loved so much. This may be because the same team, Big City Events, which put on that festival has taken over Guavaween this year. Lucky for us!
There are going to be 5 themed areas:
Funhouse Avenue with voodoo magic and a Freakshow Carnival
Dumaine Street Courtyard – music, a costume contest, and random street performers
Laveau Lounge to get your fortune read (and more voodoo juice)
Sideshow Theater for live performances from Burlesque troupe shows, freak shows and a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. (I used to watch Rocky Horror every weekend, I’ll have to stop in!)
Club Ju-Jū – where to go for dancing and laser lights (I’m not a big dancer but I can be amused for untold hours by blinking lights…)
