The El Paso Zoo will be hosting its popular Boo at the Zoo the weekend before Halloween this year.

On Saturday, October 27, and Sunday October 28, the zoo will transform into the wildest trick-or-treat spot in town with candy stations and all kinds of slightly spooky family fun.

For the cost of regular zoo admission, the kids can spend the day trick or treating in a safe environment while partaking in various children's games and activities, and watching animals enjoy a Halloween treat of their own.

But the biggest treat of all is that they're super-sizing the not so scary fun by 2 hours again this year. Boo at the Zoo 2018 will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, according the El Paso Zoo Facebook page.

And with all the Halloween activities and family attractions such as the splash pad, Tree House Playground, and the all-new Hunt Family Endangered Species Carousel your little goblin is going to need the extra time.

A detailed list of activities and entertainment is still pending and will be announced in the coming weeks, but if it’s anything like last year it’s going to be a fun-filled day of animal encounters, costumed activities, and frightfully delightful decorations.

Be sure you save the dates.
