Festival Description

That annual Halloween festival known as Guavaween takes place in Ybor’s historic latin neighborhood of Tampa. Each year since 1985, on the last Saturday of October the festivities bring out costumed participants for contests, a parade, food, trick or treating, and many other family-friendly events. The title of the festival is taken from Tampa’s nickname — The Big Guava. The daylight hours are family-oriented and then continues into the night with the Parade on Ybor’s main street, Seventh Avenue — with costumed participants.
