Boo at the Zoo will take place on weekends from Oct. 10 through Nov. 1, from noon to 3 p.m. The fun is included with general zoo admission, which is $12.95.

Both children and adults are invited to dress up in Halloween costumes, and can join in the costume contest and parade. There will be animal meet-and-greet opportunities, as well.

Traditional trick-or-treating this October is not recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention due to COVID-19, but by wearing face masks and practicing social distancing, there are ways to make outdoor Halloween activities safer.

Details on the Elmwood Park Zoo's COVID-19 health and safety protocols are available online.
