More About Boo at the Bronx Zoo:

Boo at the Zoo has become a New York tradition, and rightly so. On select October Weekends, families can enjoy a variety of Halloween-themed activities at the Bronx Zoo and their kids can enjoy free admission if they wear a costume! It's a great chance to enjoy a weekend outdoors while the weather is still warm enough, as well as a chance to get a little more fun out of this year's Halloween costume!

In addition to visiting the zoo's collection of creepy critters (think bats, snakes and spiders), there are musical performances, hay rides, story telling, face painting, magic shows, pumpkin carving, crafts, a costume parade and trick-or-treating. The best part is that aside from hay rides, all the activities are included with the cost of zoo admission!
