Zoo Boise's new Halloween-themed event gives a rare glimpse into the zoo once the sun goes down. Spooktacular, Friday, Oct. 17-Sunday, Oct. 19, features a lighted tour among the enclosures, complete with animal encounters, Halloween displays and a chance to explore "the boneyard." The event is for kids 2-10 years old, with a glow-zone dance party, professional pumpkin carver and a mascot meet-and-greet.
On Saturday, Oct. 25, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., the zoo opens for one of its most popular events, Boo at the Zoo. Kids love the zoo on a bad day--see what happens when you add costumes and candy.
