Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium press release.
TACOMA, Wash.—Happy Howl-o-ween! Dress up like a cat, tiger, elephant or whatever your favorite animal is and then see that same real-life animal at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium during Zoo Boo weekend, Oct. 15-16.
The annual fun, fall-themed weekend is always a hoot among families. There will be plenty of ghostly games and arts and crafts. Make your own spooky spider hat, test your ear by identifying sounds from nocturnal animals, and build a creepy, crawly bug out of sticks and stones. There will also be candy and treats for the kids (and don’t worry- the Kids’ Zone playground will be open to get out all that energy!). Look around the Zoo for decorations and vote for your favorite themed area.
Plus, pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins! Watch as animals get pumpkins to munch on, see carved pumpkins in the plaza, guess the weight of pumpkins of all sizes, and watch divers in the Pacific Seas Aquarium carve pumpkins underwater (Sunday at 10:30am).
Costumes are encouraged for everyone (no face masks for adults, please). There will even be a costume parade!
When: Oct. 15 and Oct. 16 from 9am-3:30pm
Price: Free with admission to the Zoo.
