Local communities and locations in the Tampa Bay area are planning Halloween events amid ongoing social distancing guidelines due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Sept. 25, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced the state will be moving into Phase 3 of reopening, potentially allowing for more Halloween events to be scheduled moving forward.

The CDC has recommended no trick-or-treating, crowded parties or indoor haunted houses take place this year due to the risk of COVID-19.

Below is a list of events currently planned.
