Halloweekend fun includes Glow Paddleboat Rides, Poolside Treats and more

ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 2, 2020) – This Halloween, TradeWinds Island Grand is scaring up tricks and treats for a special “Halloweekend” – three full days of delightful frights featuring holiday-themed crafts, Dive-In movies, ghoulish paddleboat rides, costume contests, and the return of the fan-favorite Captain RedBeard’s Pirate Show. Grownups can join in the fun, too, with liquid libations including Candy Corn Coladas and Frankenstein Margaritas. Nightly room rates start at just $195* at the TradeWinds Island Grand, which includes a long list of spooktacular activities. The rate also includes the nightly resort fee which includes unlimited rides on the High Tide Slide, beach cabana, self-parking, Wi-Fi and more.

“With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, we wanted to provide a safe, open-air setting for kids to still be able to enjoy the holiday,” said Bob LaCasse, Managing Director of TradeWinds Island Resorts. “We’re thrilled to offer three days of safe, spooky fun, instead of just one, so families can enjoy the entire ‘halloweekend’ in one place.”

Friday, Oct. 30

  • Glow Paddleboat Rides through mysterious winding waterways of the Island Grand
