Many of our Tampa Bay&Company partners are giving you an early treat? Or is it a trick? Halloween has come early for this weekend's things to do in Tampa Bay!

The 3rd annual Hall-O-Boo! event is going on this Friday and Saturday at MOSI. From 5 to 9 p.m. this family-friendly event offers pumpkin decorating, Halloween mask making, Mad Scientist shows, costume contests and even A Bat Cave behind the IMAX Dome Theatre. There will also be hay rides outside and a Monster Mash Ball. Tickets are $8 for members and $10 for non-members.

On Saturday, Guavaween is taking over the streets of Ybor City for one of my favoriteTampa Bay area events.  From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the kid-friendly Kia Motors Guavaween Family FunFest is going to be fun for the whole family. There’ll be amusement rides, arts & crafts, safe trick-or-treating and the Children’s Costume Parade & Contest. After the family activities end, the less kid-friendly Guavaween begins. Join about 80,000 of your closest friends and wander around Ybor City all night to catch live music on multiple stages and witness the annual Mama Guava Stumble Parade.

Sunday, more family fun returns with The Florida Aquarium’s Guppyween.  From 4 to 9 p.m. kids in costume get in free for a night of safe trick-or-treating. While you’re there, check out their newest gallery, Ocean Commotion. Here, kids experience cutting edge technology where they can play with a virtual dolphin or call a virtual whale.

As I said, Halloween comes early this year! Both your children and their dentist will be thrilled! Make sure you come back and let me know how the festivities went, we can compare Guavaween notes. As always, for a complete list of things to do this weekend make sure you stop by our Calendar of Events. Until next Friday…
