32nd Annual Pumpkin Festival
5500 C.R. 675 Bradenton, Fl 34211

Hunsader Farms is hosting its 32nd annual pumpkin festival here on the Suncoast. Kids can ride camels, and there’s a snack to satiate any sweet or salty craving. There’s plenty to do between live music, stunt shows, and animal experiences. Admission is $15, and there are some special exhibits that are offered by different vendors that might be an extra cost – such as the butterfly experience.

The staple of any pumpkin or fall festival is the hayride, and those are included in admission. The corn maze and train rides cost an extra $2 per person. The festival runs on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of the month. Happy fall here on the Suncoast, see everyone out on the hayrides this weekend!

Hours: October 21 – 22, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Tampa dinner detective

The Dinner Detective Tampa Murder Mystery Show

The Dinner Detective Tampa Murder Mystery Show
5312 Avion Park Drive, Tampa, FL 33607

The Dinner Detective Tampa here on the suncoast eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into four-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea, coffee, and drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or split with the murderer as per their shadowy conspiracy. Prop guns and gunshot sound effects may be used during the performance.

Hours: varied – buy tickets HERE.

Featuring pop, classic rock, folk, Broadway and pub tunes, THE CHOIR OF MAN has something for everyone. A multi-talented cast of nine talented blokes from a pub called The Jungle combines hair-raising harmonies, foot-stomping singalongs, world-class tap dance and poetic meditations on the power of community in this riotously enjoyable homage to that gathering place we all love so much: your local pub. With a real working bar on stage serving up free pints courtesy of Coppertail Brewing Co., come ready to drink in the action. Cheers!
