Boo-at-the-Zoo 2008

Witches, goblins, ghosts … and monkeys?

Yes, that’s right. You’re invited to trick-or-treat at the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo Halloween event, 3-7:30 p.m. Saturday, October 31st. Boo at the Zoo brings together people of all ages for a fun, safe, and generousHalloween adventure.

The zoo’s 10-acre forest will glow with lights strung along its trails. The entire zoo will be decorated in “spooktacular” Halloween themes. Student zookeepers will hand out more than 92,000 pieces of candy at 12 candy stations around the zoo, and lead fun Halloween games for kids in the clearing at the zoo entrance.

Boo at the Zoo admission is one canned good per visitor. Last year, more than 6,000 visitors attended Boo at the Zoo, which donated canned goods to area food banks — just in time to help people feed their families for the holidays. Boo at the Zoo’s message is Gainesville “CAN” make a difference!

Please bring a canned good, a bag to hold your candy, a flashlight after 5 p.m., and dress up for the “wildest” Halloween trick-or-treat adventure in Gainesville. As always monetary donations are greatly appreciated.
