In Tampa Something Wicked This Way Comes

In Tampa Something Wicked This Way Comes

Whether you love cultural adventures or prefer to focus on a good time, Halloween is the perfect occasion to let your hair down.

Fall in Florida may be missing some of the Northern staples – crunchy leaves, gray skies, and chilly temperatures, to start – but Tampa is the best place for a little holiday mischief. Even when the weather seems more summery than spooky, there's still nothing but delight when it comes to all things that go bump in the night. Fans of family-friendly fun or a little adults-only fear are all in good company in the Tampa Bay area, giving you the perfect way to party hearty in your hometown.

Adult-Themed Indulgences

Nothing says Halloween like a haunted house, and the greater Tampa area is home to a few of the best in the state. The Chamber of Terror in Tampa, Scream-a-Geddon in Dade City, Fright Night at the Loft in Brandon, and Frightmares Extreme in Sarasota are excellent for a hair-raising adventure. All destinations are open every weekend throughout October, with late night time slots for maximum scares.

If imbibing in costume is a little more your speed, downtown Tampa is a great place to let loose. Tampa Pub Crawl's Halloween Pub Crawl is a great way to get your drink on with similarly-minded locals, providing an organized route that takes you across the area's best restaurants and bars. Costume parties more appealing? Put on your best, most creative dress, and get ready to party all night long. Downtown After Dark: Halloween in the City is one of Tampa's best loved events, boasting costumed cocktail gatherings with frighteningly fun themes. This year's big bashes feature bold and creative concepts that range from "The Addams Family House Party" to "After Dark Con - Superheroes vs Villains."

Fantastic Fun for the Family

Halloween is a great excuse for a little adult fun, but a day in costume spent with friends and family is a wonderful way to enjoy the holiday weekend. For little LEGO lovers, LEGOLAND Florida's Brick-or-Treat Halloween features fun, non-frightening events for kids. With trick-or-treating, lifesize LEGO characters, and a park-wide scavenger hunt, even older children can spend an exciting day in the sun.

When you'd like to plan a more educational Halloween outing, Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo is happy to awaken the beasts inside. At Creatures of the Night, eerie family frights await, including a special view of nighttime animal rituals, scare zones, and exclusive late-night hours. Or, if you'd prefer a more traditional evening out, Halloween Happenings boasts a haunted trail, movies, candy, games, and more for children ages 0 to 12. Come dressed in your cutest costumes and be ready to impress!

And who can forget trick-or treating? Scheduled individually by local neighborhoods, there are plenty of opportunities to collect a little candy. Be sure to check with your area communities for specific dates and times.

'Tis the season for spooks, haunts, and hours of festive frivolity, and the holiday in Tampa never disappoints. Whether your plans have you squiring your little ones from door to door, begging for tricks and treats, or you're hoping to enjoy a night of masked marauding, there's a little something for everyone across greater Tampa. How are you planning to celebrate the All Hallows Eve this year?
