Celebrate Halloween at the Detroit Zoo and Belle Isle Zoo!

Trick or Treat! Put your costumes on and go trick-or-treating at the Detroit Zoo and the Belle Isle Zoo. Zoo Boo kicks off eight wild nights of fun on Friday, October 19. The exciting Halloween event runs October 19-21, October 26-28 and October 30-31 beginning at 6 p.m. Zoorama Safari begins at the Belle Isle Zoo on October 17 and runs daily through October 21, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As the Detroit Zoo's annual Halloween event, Zoo Boo offers children a safe and "merry-not-scary" environment to celebrate Halloween. The event, presented by Farmer Jack, features a festively decorated trick-or-treat trail with 10 tons of pumpkins and costumed greeters passing out treats. Cider and donuts will be available for purchase. Zoo Boo is also pleased to present "Zoo Boo Revue" (a mini-musical sponsored by T.J. Maxx) as part of the festivities.

Zoo Boo is a family event that has sold out every night for several years. Last year 27,000 guests attended the event and an expected 30,000 will attend this year.

Tickets are $4 per person two years old and older. Tickets go on sale exclusively through Ticketmaster beginning October 1. Tickets available at all Ticketmaster Ticket Centers including Marshall Fields and Harmony House. Charge by phone at 248-645-6666 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.

Zoorama Safari is the Belle Isle Zoo's annual Halloween event, which provides visitors with a recreational and educational experience. Costumed volunteers passing out treats greet visitors along the elevated boardwalk that gives them a panoramic view of the animals. There will also be puppet shows, entertainment and story telling along the trail. Local agencies such as the DEA and the Coast Guard will be on hand to inform guests about current issues and career opportunities. Zoorama Safari is included in the admission to the Belle Isle Zoo. Admission is $4 per person two years old and older.

The Detroit Zoological Institute, founded in 1928, is committed to celebrating and saving wildlife. Situated on 125 acres of naturalistic exhibits, the Detroit Zoo is open year round with several indoor viewing areas. The Zoo is located at the intersection of Ten Mile Road and Woodward Avenue, just off of I-696 in Royal Oak. The Belle Isle Zoo is located just two miles east of downtown Detroit. Entrance to the island is on East Jefferson Avenue at East Grand Boulevard. The Zoo is located on Central Avenue.
