Where else can you hang out with ghosts, goblins, fairy princesses, alligators, orangutans and bears?
Try the Audubon Zoo in October, though “Boo at the Zoo”, held October 23-25 was more fun than scary, with hundreds of costumed kids gathering to trick-or-treat, to play games, to win prizes and to generally unleash their wild sides. Papillon, Johnette Downing and Dennis & Co. provided live entertainment.
Other highlights included a haunted house and the Mombassa Ghost Train. Even the Zephyrs and the Hornets had representation!
One of the country’s top-ranked zoos, Audubon Zoo offers a mix of animals from around the globe, engaging natural habitats, lush gardens and resting spots, the mystical Louisiana swamp and “hands-on” animal encounters. The event benefited Children’s Hospital.
