Hi there guys and ghouls, Jerm here! I was recently reminded by one of our loyal blog readers that in all of the grown-up Halloween hoopla, I somehow managed to leave the kiddies out of the equation.  Shame on me, especially when there are tons of things going around around the Bay for the kiddies and their parents to get into, not just trick or treating on Halloween.

Zoo Boo: One of many Halloween Activities in Tampa BayIt seems like only yesterday I was dressed up in my Spiderman costume (you know the one with the footies in it)! Okay so actually it was last year.  Not really, it would be weird for a 6 foot 245 lb man to be walking around in the same Spiderman outfit he wore as a kid, not to mention a bit snug!

Well have no fear Tampanian parental units, there's plenty for you and your young ones to partake in during this ghoulish like time of year.  I have scouted the internet for some local stuff going on so be sure to check these out courtesy of Bay News 9 and a few others:
