With Halloween right around the corner, we’re thinking of all the ways we can get into the spooky spirit. Get your Halloween vibes going strong with these four spooky social events held right here in Tampa.
Riverwalk Halloween Hunt
A completely safe and socially-distanced event, the Riverwalk Halloween Hunt is a virtual scavenger hunt that takes place along the iconic Tampa Riverwalk. This not-too-spooky event is perfect for all ages. Participants get to solve Halloween puzzles and riddles and complete fun tasks, all while exploring the Riverwalk. After downloading the Mobile Adventures app, you’ll scan the provided QR code to begin your adventure, which may take place anytime between Oct. 16 and Oct. 31. Have a spooky time, all while competing to be the first place HalloWinner, at this free community event.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde at Straz Center
Grab a front row seat at Jaeb Theater in the Straz Center for a remake of the classic spooky story Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Watch as Henry Jekyll battles his other self, Edward Hyde, in a game of cat and mouse to determine who will be the ultimate master, and who will be the slave. Tickets are just $18 each, and showings are offered nightly from Oct. 20 to Nov. 14.
An Eerie Evening at the Tampa Bay Hotel
Come check out the Henry B. Plant Museum as you’ve never seen it before, in the moonlight! An Eerie Evening at The Tampa Bay Hotel invites you to come along for a night of spooky investigations, as you are transported back to the 1900s and witness a recent questionable death that you must solve. Put on your investigative hat and grab a spot at The Tampa Bay Hotel on Oct. 22, 23, 29, or 30.
Riverwalk Trick or Treat
Bring the whole family out to the 5th Annual Riverwalk Trick or Treat event, held on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 4-7 PM. This free community event gives kiddos and their parents the opportunity to get a little trick-or-treating in before the big day and enjoy some fun activities along the way! With over 50 treat stations along the Riverwalk, from Water Works Park to MacDill Park, there’s plenty of fun to go around. After donning your best costumes and grabbing some treats, hang around for the Halloween Lighted Boat Parade along the Hillsborough River.
