I was at a Halloween store and I overheard a couple talking about the Boo at the Zoo and how they've never missed it. They were going to have to change some plans this weekend so they could keep the streak alive.

That's how great it is and this Friday and Saturday is the final weekend at the Binghamton Zoo. It's always a spooktacular time and all of the proceeds from the event goes toward animal care, exhibit maintenance, and enrichment.

The zookeepers will be selling glowstick necklaces and there will be an animal art raffle. These proceeds will go toward the upgrade of the reptile unit in their Education Department.

It's for the older guests and is not recommended for children under 10. Maybe this will be the year that Tara will finally try the Boo at the Zoo. You can a wear costume but masks are NOT permitted.

Strollers and alcohol aren't allowed during the event either. The screams begin 6:30 pm and the last surviving ticket is sold at 9:00 pm.

America's 5th Zoo (established in 1875) is at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton. The temperatures may be in the 40's but it's going to be a BOOtiful weekend at the zoo.
