Trick-or-Treat at ZooBoo

Do your kids like animals? Do they like trick-or-treating? Then you need to check out ZooBoo at the Seneca Park Zoo.

Grab your costumes and get ready for some fun at the zoo on October 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, or 27. They'll provide a ZooBoo trick-or-treating bag, as well as a "passport" for each trick-or-treater.
Costume? Check. Zoo Boo bag? Check.
Stop by the trick-or-treat stations to get your passport stamped and pick up your treats. The fifteen trick-or-treat stations are located in the zoo buildings, which makes it easy to enjoy the day even if the weather doesn't cooperate. The nice part about the treats here is that about half are trinkets, so it's not all candy. Plus, each trick-or-treater receives a gift as they exit the zoo. This can be an invaluable incentive to leave for those kids who are reluctant to do so. (Translation: If your kid pulls a tantrum and doesn't want to go home, bribe them with the gift at the end. Not that I've ever done that. No.)
Be on the lookout for some zoo mascots, too!
The animals get to enjoy some treats throughout the day, too. Be sure to check out the schedule that day to visit the animal exhibits and watch them have some fun.

ZooBoo is family friendly and appropriate for all ages. There is nothing scary here! Plus Seneca Park Zoo is stroller-friendly, features several restrooms each with diaper-changing tables. The concession stands will be open for lunch or snacks.

Non-members need to pay admission, but ZooBoo tickets are only needed for trick-or-treaters (both members and non-members need to purchase ZooBoo tickets for $8 for each trick-or-treating child). Pre-sale tickets for zoo members are $6 each and are not date-specific so they may be used on any ZooBoo day this month.
ZooBoo is a great way to extend the Halloween festivities beyond October 31st, have some family fun, and to get at least one extra use out of your kids' Halloween costumes! After you visit, be sure to Post a Comment to tell us your child(ren)'s favorite ZooBoo treat. As always, thanks for reading.
