If you live in the New York City area, or are planning a visit this October, make sure to swing by the Bronx Zoo and celebrate the Halloween season. All month long the zoo is featuring fun activities and events for the entire family.
For a full list of events and activities you can refer to my previous post – Celebrate a New York Tradition.
Last weekend Cinderella from Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Broadway musical Cinderella was in attendance for an exclusive “meet and greet” AND a musical performance. What a treat! (no pun intended). There was even a costume parade with Cinderella and boys and girls who came to the zoo dressed up in their Halloween costumes. How cute.
If you are available to visit the zoo on October 26th or 27th (2013) you’ll be able to get a FREE copy of the Goosebumps book Goosebumps Most Wanted: Dr. Maniac Will See You Now. Once you pick up a copy of the book be sure to take a fun and frightful Goosebumps photo.
This special event is presented by Scholastic and will be available from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM on each day.
This is not the only event at the zoo. Boo at the Zoo is a fun-filled, animal-themed, kid-friendly, not-to-scary Halloween experience. The fun includes a hay maze, musical theater, costume parades, magic and more.
My family visited the Bronx Zoo last year to check out the Boo at the Zoo fun. If you would like to check out our adventure and see some photos from that day visit my post – Boo at the Zoo.
While you are there don’t forget to check out Dinosaur Safari for a fun and educational trip back in time. Humm… I wonder if the Dinosaurs celebrated Halloween?
We also checked out the Dinosaur Safari ride over the summer. If you would like to get a sneak peek at what we saw you can read about it here – Take a ride on the “prehistoric” side at the Bronx Zoo.
Have you ever visited the Bronx Zoo during the Halloween season? Did you have a favorite event or activity during your visit? Feel free to comment and tell me about it.
