Tarpon Springs to Host Halloween Bash
Mark your calendars now because this event promises to be one you will not want to miss.
On October 20, the historic downtown district of Tarpon Avenue will be closed to traffic and opened for some spooky fun.
It all starts at 4pm as the Tasting Tampa Food Truck Rally will be taking place with a number of food trucks dishing out their best plates. As shop owners hand out candy to trick or treaters, live music will add some backup flavor to the festivities.
Costumes are not required but are encouraged. There will be a costume contest with four categories: best adult male or group and a runner up, best boy (child) and best girl (child). Prizes will be given to the winners in each category.
A spooky zombie wedding party will be roaming the streets and even take part in a ceremony. For a small charge, folks can get their photo taken with the wedding party. The photo will then be emailed to the participant.
The fun doesn't end after the food truck rally. The Tarpon Springs Recreation Department will be showing the Rocky Horror Picture Show for a small fee and for those interested, a haunted walk through Anclote Park will also be available.
