Patch Minute: Newton's Haunts, Oktoberfest, Fish Broil

Looking to get spooked? How about taste testing at Oktoberfest? Or, stop by a tradition 82 years in the making for fresh fish cooked the same way since 1930! That's right, check out this week's Patch Minute!

In St Pete

If you're not quite ready for Halloween, we have the 3rd annual St. Pete Oktoberfest this Friday and Saturday in the Grand Central District. The street festival will be at 2200 Central Avenue and will include beer tastings and live music. Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the gate. To buy tickets check out the event's website.

In Gulfport

We are inside the "Midway" on Newton Avenue in Gulfport here with Nolan Sloan. Nolan tells me about Newton's Haunts at the 5600 block of Newton Ave S.

It's a $2 donation per person per house.

Sanitarium is open from 7:30 - 10 p.m. and the Midway is open 7:30 - 10:30 p.m. Check out the following dates for both haunted houses:

  • Oct. 19, 20
  • Oct. 26, 27

In Pass-A-Grille

In Pass-a-grille we have a family tradition that's been filling bellies for more than 80 years. The 82nd Annual Fish Broil and Mullet Festival is this Saturday.

What I think it really cool is that the fish has been cooked the same way since 1930. The carnival begins at 3 p.m.
