Fall Events Tampa

Fall Fun In Tampa!

Fall doesn't really exist in Florida, but that doesn't mean there aren't some fun Fall activities to do!


Fall is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think Florida. Even though it is still hot as hell, it does get a little cooler, so we do our best to pretend Fall is here! For those of you who transferred from up North, and are missing all the Fall activities back home - you may have some fun at these events!

Hyde Park Fall Festival


The signature of any fall activity is pumpkin picking/carving. Hyde Park Fall Festival begins October 6th, and continues through the end of the month. The Fall Festival include a pumpkin patch open 7 days a week, and of course you can enjoy all the food and music Hyde Park has to offer!

For my Disney Lovers...


I am not a huge Disney person, but I love Disney during Fall. Disney has various different themed Halloween nights and parades during the month of October. My favorite has to be their newly added Hocus Pocus Halloween Party! Definitely put your annual passes to Disney and check out some of the fun Halloween inspired events there

Ghost Hunting


The best thing about Fall in Florida, is that you don't have to worry about being cold or getting snowed out, so why not head to St. Pete for some fall fun? Ghost Tours in St. Pete host a walking door of the post haunted areas in St. Pete. Tickets are only $20 and $12 for kids. This is a great way to learn a little more about historical St. Pete and the haunter places that lurk there.


18+ Only


This is a great event for USF students to attend. October 26th marks The Legend of the Pumpkin King parade in Ybor! Along with Tampa Halloween Revolution, the Pumpking King with lead the Parade through Ybor dressed in full Halloween costume. The even begins in Centro Ybor and will go from 7pm - 8:30pm . Stay safe!

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
