This family friendly event will allow the community to enjoy candy stations, pumpkin bowling, inflatable games, a maze, Creepy Crawly Critter Corner (Black light room with glow in the dark bugs), costume parade at 1:45 p.m. daily, over 20 animal enrichment activities each day and much more. Visitors will also get to watch as zoo animals get pumpkins to celebrate and squish them before eating them.
This year's Boo at the Zoo will provide palm oil free candy at each candy station. This is the first ever Palm Oil free event among zoos in the United States accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Zoo guests will discover how they can help slow down tropical habitat destruction through their informed shopping choices. Palm oil is a food additive from the palm nut grown in the tropics. Because people purchase products that have palm oil as an ingredient, companies continue to require more rain forest habitat to be replaced with palm oil plantations.
Boo at the Zoo provides a safe place for children to trick-or-treat and allows families to celebrate together in a fun environment. Activities and candy stations are provided at no cost with paid admission
