It’s the great pumpkin, Tampa! If the great pumpkin was a foodie with a key for personal style, it would certainly roll up to Hyde Park Village for a not-so-spooky Halloween. The village bursting with flavor and fashion announced the return of its gorgeous pumpkin patch beginning October 1 and running through October 26. Proceeds from the Pumpkin Patch to benefit The Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
There’s already so much to enjoy in Tampa during spooky season. Take a family-friendly ride along the Haunted Hillsborough River with Pirate Water Taxi, or those seeking serious thrills can venture into Undead in the Water nautical attraction. This Hyde Park Pumpkin Patch is that quintessential tradition in the city of Tampa. No, Florida isn’t known for its foliage or seasonal changes, but our local businesses sure know how to bring a brush of autumn into our hearts.
Pumpkin Patch hours are Monday through Thursday from 3pm-6pm; Friday from 12pm-6pm; Saturday from 10am-6pm; and Sunday from 12pm-5pm. Mini pumpkins and gourds start at just $1, and the largest pumpkins $20, with scaled pricing for other sizes.
Hyde Park Village will also donate $1 to The Humane Society of Tampa Bay for every photo taken tagging @hydeparkvillage on Instagram (up to $1000). Last year the Hyde Park VillagePumpkin Patch raised over $11,000 for the Humane Society, helping dozens of Tampa Bay animals.
The Pumpkin Patch will host Storytime in the Patch with Mother Boo where children can listen to a reading of fall classics, take home free mini pumpkins and more. Readings will take place on the half hour between 10am-11:30am every Thursday in October.
