Kids love to trick-or-treat, so why limit the Halloween fun to one night a year? There are plenty of chances for your little monsters to dress up and get candy all month long at these kid-friendly Halloween events in Tampa Bay.
ZooTampa invites all of your little ghouls and gobblins to their Haunted Park filled with extravagant costumes and fun actors that will get your kids excited about the spooky season. Creatures of the night is the most kid-friendly haunted house in the area, however, I would suggest that your children are over the age of 8 to attend. It's great fun for the whole family!
On October 27, dress up in your best costume and take the kids to the Riverwalk for some trick-or-treating! The third Annual Tampa Riverwalk Trick or Treat Event will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. along the Tampa Riverwalk and Curtis Hixon Park. There will be more than 50 candy stations to score treats plus complimentary trick-or-treat bags while supplies last. After everyone fills up on sweets, there will be a showing of The Addams Family in Water Works Park at 7 p.m.
Centro Ybor will turn into a pumpkin patch for children of all ages on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 11 a.m. t o3 p.m. Pick from over 2,000 pumpkins in this fenced-in patch and then decorate your find at the pumpkin decoration and craft area. Costumes are encouraged, especially for trick-or-treating down 7th Avenue with a free trick-or-treat bag. This event is free, but make sure to get your ticket!
The 31st Annual Trick or Treat Street will be presented by the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation and Riverview High School. Your children are invited to trick or treat and show off their costume on October 26th from 2pm-6pm.
There's nowhere your kids would rather be for a trick or treat party than Dave & Busters, so you're in luck! Stop by on the 26th of October after 5 pm so your kids will leave with a full bag of treats after a fun night at Dave & Busters.
This October at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA), Winter is hosting Winter’s Trick-or-Treat from October 15 to November 3rd. Kids 12 and under will get $9.99 admission when wearing a costume or CMA shirt. After enjoying the aquarium, go to the Atlantis Theater for Halloween activities including spooky fog, under-the-sea creatures, and pumpkin decorations as well as a Halloween glitter tattoo station, Slime Time with Professor Peduncle, and CMA Family Feud presentations.
This Halloween, get your kids out of the street for trick-or-treating and go to the Westminster Presbyterian Church parking lot for their Trunk-or-Treat. Only registered vehicles will be allowed in to decorate their trunks and pass out candy to costumed kids. All candy will be prepackaged and unopened. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., and vehicles will not be allowed to leave until the end for safety reasons.
Tire your kids out this Halloween with a glow dance party! Come out to LaDee-Da Kids Spa dressed in your favorite costume to boogie with a Minion and a Troll Princesses. There will be light refreshments, glow-in-the-dark face painting, and plenty of dance party fun. This event is October 19th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Space is limited, and tickets are $20 (reservations are required).
