October, October, we hardly knew ya. We feel like it just got here, but October is coming to an end soon. The bright side about that is that Halloween is right up the street! That’s closer than around the corner, by the way. Here are some upcoming events in the Tampa Bay area that can help you get in the spirit:
Glazer Children’s Museum 3rd Annual Halloween Spree: Wednesday, Oct. 31 4:30 – 8 pm
If you’re looking for something cool to do with your kids on Halloween night, the Glazer Children’s Museum has got you covered. There will be plenty of activities, including a meet-and-greet with Sid the Science Kid, a Spooky House, and a costume contest and parade.
Guppyween: Sunday, Oct. 28 4 pm – 8 pm
Another family friendly event. You can take your kids to the Florida Aquarium for a fun night of trick-or-treating and live entertainment. Candy and giant fish ought to make for some happy campers.
Guavaween: Saturday, Oct. 27
If you’re looking for some adult activities, then Guavaween in Ybor is the place to go. There’s the music festival, which has over 20 acts this year, the Miss Ybor Pageant, and the invasion of The Walking Dead at Prana. This year the streets are open so anybody can go to Ybor during Guavaween, but the music festival does require tickets.
Jekyll & Hyde: Oct. 23-28
So, maybe you’re not the party-goer or costume dresser-uper, but you still love the spirit of Halloween. Well the David A. Straz center has something for you. For a limited time, Jekyll & Hyde will be on stage to give you chills and goosebumps just in time for All Hallows’ Eve.
