If you're looking for some merry-not-scary Halloween fun for your wee ones, bring your costumed tots to the annual Spooktacular event at Seneca Park Zoo (2222 St. Paul Street). The festivities will be held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays, October 11-12, 18-19, and 25-26.
The event features 15 trick-or-treat stations, costumed characters, and watch some of the Zoo's animals enjoy their own treats, too. In support of orangutan conservation, 50 cents from the sale of every ZooBoo ticket will be donated to Health in Harmony, an organization that serves both human health needs and preserve natural forest resources. The zoo will once again be using recyclable materials and focusing on palm oil-free products (because the palm oil industry destroys animal habitats).
Zoo admission is $8-$11 (free to kids ages 2 and under and members). Participating in trick-or-treating has an additional cost is $8.50. Members may purchase advance tickets for $6.50 or pay $8.50 at the door. For more information, call 336-7200 or visit senecaparkzoo.org.
