Zoo Boo, presented by Farmer Jack, is an exciting and safe environment where children, primarily ages 2 to 7, can happily trick-or-treat around the Detroit Zoo. Costumed greeters pass out treats along the festively decorated, half-mile trail where pumpkin scenes such as penguins, flamingos, Harry
Potter, Shrek and many others will be displayed.
The unique costumes worn by the Zoo-goers and the elaborate pumpkin scenes around the Zoo are a sight not to be missed. In addition to the pumpkin scenes and the trick-or-treating, there is the Best Buy's Children's Activities Tent. This tent will feature Halloween games, crafts, and prizes
along with showings of the "Zoo Boo Revue", a live mini musical that starts at 6:15 p.m. and runs every half hour until 8:15 p.m.
