30th Annual ZooBooo

It’s a Baltimore Halloween Tradition!  On October 25, 26 and 27, 2013, The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore will celebrate 30 years of ZooBOOO! presented by CFG Community Bank.  The event takes place from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Zoo in the Waterfowl Lake Pavilion area. This year ZooBOOO! includes Baltimore’s safest Halloween trick-or-treating, visits from our Animal Ambassadors, a costume contest each day, carnival games, crafts, a hay maze, silly and magical entertainment and much more!

ZooBOOO! Costume Contests
11:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m. daily (Registration for the first contest closes 11:15 a.m. and 2:15 pm. for the second contest.)

Even the animals will enjoy some seasonal fun.  Out and about on Zoo grounds, there will be keeper chats and special animal enrichment activities, including everyone’s favorite – the Elephant Pumpkin Smash!  Zoo guests can watch as many animals receive their own fall treats at different times during the ZooBOOO! weekend.  Enrichment activities are designed to add variety and stimulation to the daily routines of animals at the Zoo.  They also showcase the keepers care and knowledge of the animals, as the treats are specially created for each species.

ZooBOOO! runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day and is presented by CFG Community Bank.  Additional sponsors include Stifel Nicolaus, ShopRite, and Goetze’s Candy. The event is free for Zoo members and free with paid general Zoo admission, although some activities do require an additional fee.
