’s annual trick-or-treating event, but families taking the trek up that hill to track down treats will have an opportunity to see all that and more, and have a haunting good time while they’re at it. Boo at the Zoo offers a safe environment for kids and families who want to trick or treat without the hassle of knocking on doors, and the zoo's candy, which is made with sustainable palm oil, ensures wild orangutans will have a safe environment, too.
