Friday, October 28th – National First Responders Day*

*National First Responders Day on October 28 recognizes the heroic men and women who make it their business to take immediate action when disaster strikes. Not sure what a first responder does? Just think about 9/11 for a moment. Firefighters, police, paramedics, and more — rushing into Lower Manhattan. Whether you’ve had your own emergency or not, it’s not hard to understand and appreciate the dangerous and difficult work they do.

Scream-A-Geddon: Florida’s Premier Horror Park 27839 Saint Joe Road Dade City, FL 33525
Tampa Florida’s newest haunt experience will feature 6 terrifying attractions in 1 location! and now a new food court! 7 PM – Midnight

Saturday, October 29th – National Cat Day*

*National Cat Day is celebrated on October 29. It was created by Colleen Paige to bring awareness to the number of cats that need to be rescued each year. Cats remind us that just when you think they’ve lost interest in you, they’ll turn around and melt your hearts. When it appears they’re too busy staring out at passing cars, chasing nylon mice, and sending tiny multi-colored balls to their under-the-refrigerator graves, they’ll somehow let you know that their very world revolves around you. Just wait. It’ll happen when you least expect it. Cats have their own timetable.

Riverwalk Trick or Treat Event From 4 PM – 7PM water works park, Curtis Hixon Park and MacDill Park Join us for our 6th annual Riverwalk Trick or Treat event, on Saturday, October 29, 2022, from 4 pm – 7 pm.  This is a FREE community event!  Children in costume and their families are invited to come and trick or treat along the Riverwalk as well as enjoy fun activities.

*National Treat Your Pet Day is celebrated on October 30 every year. It’s the day to allow our beloved pets to indulge in their favorite snacks or treats! While we all promote a healthy diet for our cats and dogs, there’s no harm in giving them extra treats at least once a year. So, while they’ve been eating nutritiously for the past year, it’s about time to make their taste buds happy! From pet-friendly cookies, and kibbles, to biscuits, you have a wide range of treat selections for your best friend. Find out some of the ways you can celebrate National Treat Your Pet Day.

Monday, October 31st – Halloween*

*Halloween 2022 on October 31 is undoubtedly the creepiest, most ghostly holiday of them all. Children dress up as Batman, the Joker, Wonder Woman, or some other favorite character; go to parties or walk their neighborhoods with jack o’ lanterns full of sweets as they go trick-or-treating. Spooky decorations fill windows and porches and screams can be heard in living rooms up and down the country as we collectively binge our favorite horror movies.
