Drive the Haunted Highways in Hillsborough this Halloween
Join Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation for a spooky and safe Halloween experience.
Parks & Recreation, in conjunction with Friends of the County Parks & Recreation, has created Haunted Highways in Hillsborough, a drive-through Halloween experience at four County recreation centers.
Kids and families are welcome to drive through the outdoor Halloween display at recreation centers throughout the County to get great goodies and have some frightening fun.
Many local community organizations and clubs will showcase their spooky spirit by decorating outdoor spaces with Halloween scenes full of interesting sights and sounds.
Families can attend the drive-through from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 30. The route will end with a contactless ghoulie bag distribution for the first 500 children at each location. Each ghoulie bag will have treats, toys, and information from local organizations.
The Haunted Highways events are free and will be held at the following recreation centers:
Northdale Park & Recreation Center, 15550 Spring Pine Drive, Tampa
Emanuel P. Johnson Park & Recreation Center, 5855 S. 78th St., Tampa
Keystone Park & Recreation Center, 17928 Gunn Highway, Odessa
