This is a little late in the ballgame, but I wanted to mention some of my favorite Fall Festivals in the Tampa Bay Area! There are many more I would like to visit, but there’s only so much you can visit in October!
Located in Bradenton, this weekend Pumpkin Festival has it all, from a zip line to live shows and music. They even have a Frog Jumping competition!
Fox Squirrel Corn Maze
We attended this Plant City based corn maze last year, and although it was not as impressive as the corn mazes up north, it was still fun and full of fall related activities! Distance wise it is your best bet especially if bringing little ones. The hay ride is also included with admission!
Admission to this event is FREE! It was packed but never felt too crowded and there were so many pumpkins to choose from! I loved the hay ride, which they had decorated with little tombstones and skeletons. It is in Sarasota so a bit of drive but I feel its worth it.
What is your favorite thing to do in the fall? Any places you recommend going to?
