Fall Family Fun in Tampa Bay


Fall is officially here and Tampa Bay residents are very excited! If you haven’t had the chance to check out all the wonderful events Tampa offers this time of the year, don’t worry because we have you covered. Fall is the beginning of the holiday season, which means you should be spending all the time you can with friends and family. Check out some of the awesome things happening this fall:


  • Fox Squirrel Corn Maze– Every fall, the Futch family opens their ranch up to the public to let everyone enjoy their corn maze. The event takes place every Saturday and Sunday from 10-5 throughout the month of October. On top of the maze, you can also enjoy a hay ride, partake in duck races, play horseshoes, and more. The maze costs $11 for adults and $10 for kids. Don’t forget to wear sneakers or hiking boots!


  • Horse Power for Kids’ Fall Festival– The holiday season is one that is meant for giving. From October 3rd through November 1st, you and your family can ride ponies, listen to live music, play games and get your faces painted all while giving back to the community. Horse Power for Kids is a non-profit organization that provides petting zoos as a source of therapy for kids, which means that your $10 goes towards an incredible cause. Bring your family to this event and get into the fall spirit!.


  • Pumpkin Patch at Hyde Park Village– Fall is the perfect time to wander around Hyde Park Village. The weather is perfect for grabbing a warm cup of coffee and strolling by all the shops. To top it off, Hyde Park has a pumpkin patch throughout October and November; make sure to pick some up while visiting the Village!


  • Howl O’Scream– If  your kids like to have a spooky Halloween then Howl O’Scream is the ideal event for your family.  This event is a bit pricey, but there are multiple haunted houses and shows that make the scare worth the money. Small children should not attend this event if they are easily scared, so this experience would be better for a family with teenagers.
