â€śZoo Booâ€ť Returns October 28
Spirits, superheroes, as well as ghastly creatures of all stripes will be on the prowl at Zoo Idaho Saturday, October 28.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the zoo will be hosting its annual â€śZoo Booâ€ť event.Â The special day at Zoo Idaho will let trick or treaters get an early start on filling their candy quotas for 2017 while experiencing the zooâ€™s animals.
â€śThis yearâ€™s Zoo Boo is bigger and spookier than ever,â€ť said Rachael Shearouse, Curator of Education at Zoo Idaho. â€śWe have more than 20 vendors that will be handing out candy and providing fun Halloween activities for our guests. For example, trick or treaters will be able to take a walk through the bear graveyard, frolic in the vampire lair, and stop by Little Red Riding Hoodâ€™s forest. We have a variety of activities scheduled for all ages.â€ť
Attendees will be treated to live music by the Teton Shadow Band from noon to 2 p.m. Also on tap will be a haunted treehouse, Mad Science Lab and booths from local merchants and organizations. Food will be available for purchase from The Sand Trap.
Admission to Zoo Boo is free for children 2 and under, as well as ZooÂ Idaho Zoological Society members, $3.75 for ages 3 to 11, $5.75 for ages 12 and up, and $4.50 for ages 60 and up.
