Halloween Events in the Metro Detroit area

I made the mistake of letting Rosa pick out her costume already, which has led to her asking, "Can we go Trick or Treating tonight?" several times a day....  oh boy!  I'm counting down the days to Halloween, but I'm so glad I don't have to wait for her to wear her costume.  There are plenty of great events going on in our area and I thought I would share some of them with you!

Detroit Zoo Boo

The Detroit Zoo’s annual “merry-not-scary” Zoo Boo celebration, presented by Michigan Education Savings Program, features a festively decorated half-mile trick-or-treat trail through the front of the park. Live, friendly entertainment awaits your costume-clad little ones in theZoo Boo Review tent, and they will be delighted to try their luck at the Ghouly Games Tent, sponsored by Blue Care Network. Be sure to stop by the Haunted Reptile House, sponsored by Flagstar Bank and visit the ghosts and goblins who have made the Holden Reptile Conservation Center their home for the holiday season. And don’t miss the Zombie Zone, sponsored by Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop featuring ghostly games and spooky activities sure to send a chill up your spine!

Zoo Boo will be held on the evenings of October 12-14, October 19-21 and October 26-28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., rain or shine. On Saturday, October 27 ONLY Zoo Boo will offer a 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. time slot! Tickets for the 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. time slots are limited and are available in advance only. Advance tickets for Zoo Boo can be purchased at Booth One at the admission gate of the Detroit Zoo or online. Tickets may sell out, so advance ticket purchase is encouraged!
