This Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 27 & 28) are the final days for our popular Halloween event, ZooBoo! The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each of the days; member kids who trick-or-treat are $7 each and non-member kids are $7 each (plus our Zoo admission fee).
The past two weekends have been busy and feedback from our visitors has been very positive. Kids love the mixture of candy and trinkets as treats and parents are happy that there’s at least one healthy snack, too! The photo opportunities provided with a variety of mascots, from our own lion mascot, Chester, to characters from area sports teams, create lasting memories for families. Entertainment at the Eagle’s Landing Pavilion allows families to stop, grab lunch and enjoy the show.
Visitors enjoy watching our animals relish pumpkin “treats” at designated times each day. And finally, the prize and take-home craft are a wonderful reward for a fun day of trick-or-treating at the Zoo. There’s Express Check-In for members who bought pre-sale tickets and a parking plan, with Zoo Trolley Shuttle, which provides extra spaces on this final weekend. Don’t miss the final weekend of Merry-Not-Scary (as well as rain-or-shine) fun at the Zoo!
