Halloween is just around the corner. I was out running errands over the weekend and all the Halloween aisles in the stores were full of folks shopping and getting costumes, candy, buckets and decorations. The 28th Annual Boo at the Zoo and Boo After Dark at the Denver Zoo
is coming up very soon and that means fun for the entire family.
Boo After Dark - Oct. 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Boo At The Zoo After Dark, held October 26 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm, offers guests an exclusive, evening event at the zoo to celebrate Halloween early. Kids and their families are welcome to dress up in their favorite Halloween costume and enjoy full-size treats, up-close animal encounters and interactive booths for the kids. Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children. Tickets will not be available at the door and this event usually sells out. Visit denverzoo.org to purchase tickets or for more information.
Boo at the Zoo - Oct 27 & 28
The 28th annual Boo At The Zoo will be held October 27-28 at the zoo during normal hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event includes more than 25 trick-or-treat stations, creepy crawly demonstrations and other exciting family entertainment and is included with regular zoo admission. Guests should purchase their tickets now to avoid long lines on Saturday, October 27 or Sunday, October 28. Visit denverzoo.org to purchase tickets or for more information.
More from the Denver Zoo
Young goblins, ghosts, princesses and zooperheros will experience child-friendly trick or treating while enjoying magic shows and wild animal encounters in Denver Zoo's 80 acres of animal habitats home to more than 3,800 animal residents. Kids can get up close and personal with creepy, Halloween creatures like vampire bats, spiders and reptiles. In the spirit of having a green Halloween, Denver Zoo encourages kids to bring their own reusable bags or buckets to collect treats and instead of purchasing new costumes visit their local thrift shop to find used clothing for this year's costumes.
