Kickstart Halloween weekend with the 9th Annual Fantasma Fest presented by the Ybor Merchant's Association will take place on historic 7th Avenue with spooky outdoor family-friendly events. Fantasma Fest 2021 is a free event to the public and will take place on Saturday, October 23rd, and Sunday, October 24th, 2021.

The 9th Annual Fantasma Fest will feature free daytime events, such as the Little Monsters Pumpkin Patch and trick-or-treating.

All families will receive a map with business stops for trick or treating. The Little Monsters Pumpkin Patch takes place on October 23 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.  

Following the Little Monsters Pumpkin Patch, the Ybor Merchant Association will host the Big Monsters Bed Race. This event is for thrill-seeking speed demons and families are encouraged to watch the competition. Racers build a homemade bed on wheels through Ybor in drag race style. The signup sheet is available through October 15 for participants. Captains will meet on October 16th at 6 p.m. at the Dirty Shame. The fastest team wins a fabulous trophy and hard-earned bragging rights, and the people’s choice for the most fabulous bed will also win a trophy. This event is also family-friendly, and people who attend the Little Monster PumpkinMaps will be provided for the racetrack prior to the race. The race will also take place on Saturday, October 23. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Fantasma Fest will also feature Hell on Wheels, a classic car and vintage motorcycle show.
