Last year we didn’t take (or I can’t find) pictures at Boo at the Zoo at Brookfield Zoo, but two years ago we did take some and had a blast! Boo at the Zoo is a great activity to do with the family. When we went we met up with a few of my cousins so that all of the kids could do a little Trick or Treating together in their costumes. It’s something special that they wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
Boo! at the Zoo
For the third consecutive year, Ferrara Candy Company is sponsoring the Brookfield Zoo, Boo! at the Zoo event. In addition to providing candy, to be distributed at trick-or-treat stations throughout the zoo, Ferrara is providing local park districts in neighboring communities with a total of 600 complimentary admission tickets to be distributed to area residents.
Residents of communities where Ferrara facilities are located, including Forest Park, Bellwood, Maywood, Bolingbrook, Itasca, Franklin Park, Hillside and Northlake, will receive this sweet treat from Ferrara to enjoy complimentary admission to Boo! at the Zoo so they can enjoy special events and activities over the six days of Boo! at the Zoo. If you are a resident of one of these communities you can contact your local park district for information on how to apply for the complimentary Boo! at the Zoo tickets.*
