The Great Zoo Halloween - a Spooktacular event

On friday October 17, 2008 the Fort Wayne Childrens Zoo opened their Great Zoo Halloween. Five years ago on this date I was at the Zoo with my 2 year old son wondering what my unborn baby girl might look like. I thought it only fitting to take my kids to the Zoo on this date as the next day (October 18) was my daughters birthday. This was a great addition to her birthday celebration.

During our stay we saw all sorts of scary things. Gouls, goblins, witches, etc. I think I saw a good witch at this event. I also saw many copies of the guy from "Scary Movie". There were pumpkins of every shape and size. Displays dipicting some of your favorite movies or tv shows. Even Casey the Cash cow from K105 radio station was there. There was a train ride through the haunted forest.

The kids and I had a great time progressing through the event from candy station to candy stations. This event represents a safe way for kids to trick-or-treat. The cost for this event is $6 per child and $4 per adult. It is on now through October 31, 2008. Check the Fort Wayne Childrens Zoo website for hours.

I remember a couple of seasons when I was working at the zoo helping set this up. It was a lot of fun.
