The Palm Beach Zoo has announced plans for special Halloween events in October. Boo at the Zoo, a South Florida family favorite will be held on Friday through Sunday, October 19th to 21st and October 26th to 28th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Friday evenings, October 19th and 26th from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Zoo will also offer a special family overnight program called Spooky Snooze on October 6th, 20th, and 27th.

Boo at the Zoo was founded over 15 years ago to provide the community with a safe and educational venue for trick-or-treating. Since that time, Boo at the Zoo has become Palm Beach County’s #1 family event during the Halloween season. In 2011 nearly 10,000 guests attended during the six days of celebration. Festivities include trick-or-treating, provided by local vendors, and children’s entertainment including games, crafts, hay-stack hunt, decorate-your-own pumpkin patch, bounce house, face painting, photo opportunities throughout the Zoo, Monster Mash dance parties in the Fountain Plaza, Halloween-themed treats in the Tropics Café, special Halloween treats for the animals, roving animal encounters, and costume contests.

Spooky Snooze Overnights at the Zoo will be held on October 6th – 7th, 20th – 21st, and 27th – 28th. The program begins on Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m. and runs through Sunday at 8:30 a.m. Evening activities include pumpkin painting, crafts, night time tours, an evening pizza snack, and Continental breakfast. Activities are designed for family members ages six through adult. Mummies and/or daddies must attend with their children.
