If you’ll be in south Florida for Halloween and you’re looking for some spooky festivities to enjoy at the spookiest time of the year, check out one of the events The Palm Beach Zoo will be hosting in October. Family-favorite event Boo at the Zoo and Spooky Snooze will both be worth taking part in and details have finally been announced!

Boo at the Zoo

Beloved southern Florida event, Boo at the Zoo, has been taking place for more than fifteen years. It was founded to give the community’s children a safe place for trick-or-treating where they could also learn something. Since then, Boo at the Zoo has become the highlight of the Halloween season for residents of Palm Beach County. Last year, 10,000 people came out to enjoy the festivities which include trick-or-treating, children’s games, a hay-stack hunt, bounce house, face painting, photo ops, decorate-your-own pumpkin patch, Monster Mash dance parties in the Fountain Plaza, special treats for the animals, costume contests, roving animal encounters and Halloween-themed treats in the Tropics Cafe.
