Fishhawk Ranch, Riverview Chamber set early start to Halloween

Two events will help the community get an early start to Halloween this Saturday.

FishHawk Ranch stages its annual Pumpkin Festival at the FishHawk Ranch Mosaic. It starts with a costume fun run/walk at 8 a.m., with most activities taking place from 2 to 8 p.m. Events include a pie eating contest, a concert and a pumpkin lighting after sunset.

Proceeds will benefit the YMCA and Feeding America Tampa Bay.

Meanwhile, the 2012 Trick or Treat Street, presented by the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office and Hillsborough County Parks, takes place from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Riverview High School.

The event creates a safe place for children of all ages to have fun and share in the tradition of trick-or-treating. People from local churches, businesses and organizations will dress up, decorate their booths and distribute candy and/or small toys to children of all ages. Ribbons will be awarded for booth design and decoration in several categories.
