Looking for the safe way to take your little ghouls trick-or-treating this year that is fun for the entire family? Why not bring them to the wildest neighborhood in town on October 28 and October 29 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m? It's the Zoo Boo Bash 2017, and the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens is inviting all 321area little ones to come and have a truly wild time this Halloween in Brevard

While the zoo residents are wild, the fun is not-too-scary at this popular Halloween event in Sanford for young and old alike. The critters love to decorate their habitats for visitors, and some may even do a trick or two while you're searching for the treats.

Make yourself a lasting treat to take home at the craft station. On both days, there will be two storytime readings of Skeletons in the Closet, with copies of the book available for sale so your little one can celebrate all weekend long. If you prefer a mix of music and stories, there will also be a musical story time each day. And on Sunday only, attend the bat workshop. You'll learn more about bats and how beneficial they are to the Florida environment, especially when it comes to eating Florida's most dreaded vampires, the mosquitos.

Attending the ZOO Boo Bash is included with general Zoo admission, though some additional fees may apply for specific activities. Kids are invited to their bring goody bags and wear their costumes for the trick-or-treat stations. There will, of course, be a costume contest. However, if you forget your outfit, it's not a problem, there will be a face painter to help your trick-or-treater fit right in.

You'll have nothing but a good time at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens Zoo Boo Bash, and make sure you stick around for the entire party or else you'll miss the thrilling special surprise they have in store for you.
