ZooBoo Goes Bump In the Night
A family fun evening with furry friends
Thursday, Oct. 18 - 30
Lions and tigers and vampires… If your life is not complete without being able to see a princess and snake in the same room, or a fuzzy costumed lion meeting its real-life counterpart, you are in luck. Zoo Boo is upon us. This annual event provides an ample amount of chills and cheers for all ages. Between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m. on October 18th through the 30th, the Erie Zoo once again opens its doors to reveal one of Halloween's best family-friendly events.
Plenty of entertainment and treats are provided throughout the park, while grown-ups and children get to dress in costumes and admire the animals after dark. Creepy creatures (real and imagined) lurk around every corner and the nighttime often shows a different side of some of the nocturnal creatures that are often more sedate during the day.
October 20th and 27th will see Day Boo, beginning at 2 p.m. for those that like their frights a bit milder or well-lit. Sometimes even grown-ups are scared of the dark. Don't worry, that pint-sized superhero will keep you safe, as the cheerful chills await you. — Marnie Foss
