Every year, my daughter and I look forward to Howloween and  Boo at the Zoo at Ross Park Zoo. It's back but it's going to look a little different this year. In the past, they would have a kid-friendly event for the first three weekends of October. The final weekend would be more for the adults.

Ross Park Zoo and the Discovery Center have announced that they will combine for Halloweekend on Saturday, October 30th, and Sunday, October 31st from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ross Park Campus.


Halloweekend will be a family-friendly event with tricks and treats for all ages. Dr. Brenda Myers from the Discovery Center said that "Halloweekend is dedicated to having fun with hands-on learning and celebrating the fun of Halloween."

It will be a family destination with exhibits at Ross Park Zoo, Discovery Center, and the Story Garden. It'll feature make and take crafts, pumpkin painting, food, and a costume contest each day at the Ross Park Amphitheater.

If you're thinking about going, you may want to get your tickets now. Tickets will be sold online by reservation only and it'll be limited to 500 tickets for both days. America's 5th oldest zoo is located at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton.
