It's the last weekend before Halloween sneaks up on us, so make sure you get in the spooky spirit! We've got all the best things to do in Tampa in one place, now all you have to do is decide which ghouls and goblins you're going to haunt the weekend with. There are several costume-centric parties happening for Halloween in Tampa, including Scream Machine at O'Brien's and a haunted bus crawl around the city. Start getting your costume together (we know most of you still don't have a clue what you'll be) and calling your fellow ghosts, because you won't want to miss any of the Halloween fun in Tampa! 

If you're not one for hauntings, don't be scared. We have events on this list of the top 10 things to do in Tampa that will have you squealing (with excitement, not fear of course). Fear not, because either way, it's going to be a great weekend in Tampa!
