Zoo Boo is a spooktacular-howling good time at the Dakota Zoo in Bismarck, North Dakota.  This year's event will take place this Saturday, October 30th from 1 to 4 pm.  It is so nice to see this safe and fun trick-or-treating experience back in the community.  If you remember, last year's Zoo Boo was canceled not due to COVID-19, but because of extremely cold weather, we were experiencing in Bismarck at the time.

Temps this year are expected to be in the '40s and it should be pretty pleasant for trick-or-treaters and parents alike.  With that in mind, here are 4 things you need to know about this year's Zoo Boo.

Number One:  You are more than welcome to view and enjoy the animals while you trick-or-treat.  I'm looking forward to seeing the new penguins at Dakota Zoo.

Number Two:  The cost of the event is only $5.00 per person and that does include adults.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.  The admission fee applies to both members and non-members alike.

Number Three:  The money raised is a fundraiser that will go directly back to the animals at the Dakota Zoo.

Number Four: This year at Zoo Boo there will be treat booths, spooky destinations, concessions, and more.
