This is the final weekend for Howloween at the Zoo at the Binghamton Zoo. Howloween is more about the zoo and less about the boo. It's a family-friendly event that runs from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.

It has Halloween stations and activities for all ages. Kids can earn tokens at each station and redeem them for candy and prizes.

They encourage you dress up in costume, so I think I'll wear my Tigger costume. It's a zoo so I should dress up like an animal...Okay, It's my favorite costume, so I would have worn it anyway.

This Saturday, the 501st Legion's Garrison Excelsior Star Wars Characters will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Devil Dawg from the Binghamton Devils along with Rowdy the Rumble Pony will make an appearance from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Then beginning next Friday, October 19th, Boo at the Zoo is back. Celebrate the Halloween season by touring the zoo in a whole new light or no lights at all…HAHAHA.

Boo at the Zoo is intended for older audiences, and is not recommended for children under the age of 10. Strollers will not be allowed into the event. You can wear a costume but masks are NOT permitted.

Boo at the Zoo is October 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th  from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Free parking will be available at the UHS parking lot on Pennsylvania Avenue. The BC Transit Trolley will shuttle you back and forth from there to the zoo beginning at 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

Our family likes to take the Trolley because it feels like going back in time. To see the complete schedule of events at the zoo, go here. The Binghamton Zoo is located at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton.
