It’ll be all treats and no tricks for your little pirates and princesses at this year’s Boo at the Zoo at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the region’s most unique Halloween event. Boo at the Zoo is a fun way for families with young children to trick-or-treat and enjoy Halloween festivities in a safe environment, and all of the candy is made with sustainable palm oil to help protect wild orangutans. Support the Zoo’s efforts to reduce waste by bringing your own trick-or-treat bag from home.

Boo at the Zoo runs October 21-23, and 28-31 from 4:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Tickets are now available for advanced purchase. Visit www.cmzoo.org to purchase tickets.
