Halloween is almost here. This Saturday is the Hawk Halloween parade at noon. That's not all that's going on this weekend. How about "Boo at the Zoo?"

Do you think you’re brave enough to enter a haunted zoo and live to tell the tale? Join the Binghamton Zoo this Friday and Saturday for Boo at the Zoo! A night of spine-chilling fright lies ahead with terrifying displays of Halloween scenes and characters.

Enter the grounds between 6:30pm and 9:30pm and walk through graveyards with spooky inhabitants, a day of the dead celebration, a cannibal kitchen, an Egyptian embalmment, and much more!

Unlike the Howl-O-Weekends, this is for the older zoo guests and not recommended for those under 10 years old. Strollers will not be permitted during the event. You are allowed to wear costumes to Boo at the Zoo if they so choose, but masks are NOT allowed.

The last ticket will be sold at 9:00pm. Free parking and shuttle will be available at UHS parking lot on Penn Ave near Weis plaza. That's where are family parks. We all enjoy taking the short trip on the "trolley shuttle."  So come out for a BOOtiful time at the Zoo. To find out more go here.
