Updated: Congratulations to Margaret and her hockey player son, Vincent, who won the tickets! Enjoy Boo at the Zoo.
Can you believe that Halloween is less than two weeks away? Do you have your costume picked out? Do your children know what they're going as? If your family is anything like my family was growing up, you have one kid who has had their costume planned for month, another kid who rejects every possible suggestion with tears and tantrums, and another kid who will throw on some ripped clothes and fake blood on the 31st and call it a costume! I'll let you decide which of those was me as a child. But, for a hint, you should know that I've been planning Lucas's costume for more than a month!
There are dozens of excellent events taking place in Prince George's County and the DC-area now through October 31 and I'm kicking off a week of Halloween related posts. I'm starting with a bang--and a giveaway--by highlighting Boo at the Zoo!
Don’t miss your chance to go trick-or-treating at the home of DC’s creepiest and cuddliest creatures! The 11th annual Boo at the Zoo will take place October 23-25, from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
With enhanced eerie lighting and 47 stations serving up a variety of candy, healthy, and organic goodies, this popular family Halloween party features talks about tarantulas, cockroaches, and scorpions, and playful demonstrations of lions and tigers using their predatory skills.
Boo at the Zoo is already sold out for Saturday night, but Friday and Sunday night tickets are still available! Tickets are $15 for Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ) members and $25 for nonmembers. Proceeds support animal care, conservation science, education, and sustainability at the Zoo. For more information and tickets, click here.
