Chamber of Terror: Tampa's Fall Carnival

It may not be Bozo, but have you met Bubba?

Banner, 2019
Welcome to Tampa's only fall festival. After the fall of the Last Laugh Toy Company, the residents have struggled, looking for some form of refuge... Somewhere to call home. That refuge was found just south of Gandy, at a civic center off Oklahoma. There's tents of fun, games of chance, and even a kissing booth. Do you dare take a step inside and experience the fun for yourself?

Chamber of Terror has consistently been one of Tampa's most terrifying haunted houses since their pro debut on the scene four years ago. Prior to becoming a pro haunt, Chamber of Terror spent many successful years as a backyard Halloween event. After taking a year off to reinvent themselves, Chamber of Terror is back and it's time for an entirely new concept.

Breaking: Four Green Fields coming to Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park

The results are in: Four Green Fields won the bid!

The Future of Four Green Fields, 2017

Mayor Bob Buckhorn has been trying to get a restaurant into Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park for a while now. Word got out about a month ago that there were seven bids being considered for the former Police outpost. Those seven options where:

- Four Green Fields
- Richard Gonzmart and the Columbia Food Services
- Richard Calderoni with El Goya LLC
- John Oraha 
- Bill Rain and Mark Newkirk
- Burton Holdings
- Polycreative

Gonzmart and the Colubmia Food Services were thought to be the clear favorites in the running, however, Four Green Fields came out of nowhere and provided a higher bid. The deal worked out through the city calls for Four Green Fields to pay just under $90,000 a year in rent and the buildout will cost a reported $680,000 (thanks tampabay.com). 

Four Green Fields is a local favorite, and after the Mayor's River O' Green event, the need for an Irish Restaurant on the Riverwalk was clear. The new restaurant will offer indoor and outdoor seating as well as a raw bar. Four Green Fields has proven to be a success during their 25 years in Tampa at their Platt St location.
