Boo at the Zoo Returns

T2F Note: What better way to spend a fall day than at the zoo? This week's highly coveted Fayette Front Page Day Tripper Award goes to Zoo Atlanta for hosting this year's event during daylight hours.

Fun family Halloween festival runs October 24, 25 and 31

Atlanta’s favorite fun family Halloween festival is set to return – this year on three fun-filled days. Zoo Atlanta’s signature seasonal event, Boo at the Zoo, is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, October 24 and 25 and Saturday, October 31. Activities will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The popular celebration invites guests of all ages to sample sweet treats, meet whimsical costume characters, and enjoy live entertainment. Costumes are not only welcome, but encouraged: costume contests will take place during each day of the event.

Successful 2007 and 2008 installations of the event took place during the evening, with just one disappointment for Boo at the Zoo guests. Most of the Zoo’s star attractions – more than 1,000 animals from around the world – had gone to bed by the time the event began. With this year’s return to a daytime event, visitors will get to see their favorite Zoo residents, many of them joining in the fun themselves with their own Halloween-themed enrichment treats.

Boo at the Zoo is free for Zoo Atlanta Members and children under 3; free with general admission.
