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 at Ross Park. It's always a spooktacular time and all of the proceeds from the event goes toward animal care, exhibit maintenance and enrichment.

It's for the older guests and is not recommended for children under 10 and this is the year that my daughter, 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.  Here's your chance to visit Ross Park in the dark with the screams beginning at  6:30 p.m. with the last surviving ticket being sold at 9:00 p.m.

This is only one of the things that's going on the zoo, go here to see other events that are happening in the next few months. America's 5th Zoo (established in 1875) is at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton.

The temperatures are going to be in the mid 40's so it's going to be a BOOtiful weekend at the zoo.
