The Greenville Zoo will be hosting its annual Boo in the Zoo, a family friendly event for children ages 12 and under. This Halloween event is not scary, featuring trick-or-treating and a haunted house.
This year’s Boo in the Zoo is running two weekends, Friday, October 18th through Sunday, October 20th and Friday, October 25th through Sunday, October 27th.
Kids and adults alike are encouraged to come in their favorite Halloween costumes and enjoy the fun filled evening! While dressing up is not required, it is one of the most fun parts of the evening! The Greenville Zoo will be supplying special Boo in the Zoo treat bags for each child. For safety reasons, guests are asked not to bring plastic pumpkins, Halloween bags or sacks.
Fun booths will be set up all throughout the zoo for children to stop and get treats in their Boo at the Zoo bags! Children can visit these safe, friendly booths without having to worrying about being scared. Parents do not have to worry – the kids get all treats and no tricks!
