For Family Halloween Fun Head to Boo at the Kansas City Zoo
If you're looking for something to do with the kids for Halloween, that isn't trick or treating in your neighborhood. You might think about heading to the Kansas City Zoo this Saturday or Sunday.
It's the Kansas City Zoo's Boo In the Zoo event happening from 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM CDT Saturday and Sunday.
According to a post on the zoo's Facebook Page, they promise a safe and not scary trick or treating experience for the entire family. And the zoo is even providing the trick-or-treat bags!
Additionally, there will be a dance party with DJ Joe, a pint-sized hay maze, pedal tractors, and more.
What do they mean by more? I'm glad you asked. The zoo's Halloween-themed animal ambassadors will be performing in the auditorium lobby each weekend day at 11:00 AM and 3:30 PM. And, the zoo's animals will be receiving pumpkin enrichment at scheduled times throughout the weekend.
So if you're looking for something a little different this Halloween. Dress the kids up in their Halloween costumes and head towards the Kansas City Zoo for Boo at the Zoo this weekend.
Admission costs for the zoo as of Thursday morning, October 28, are $18.00 for an adult admission Saturday and $16.00 on Sunday. This admission price is good for people 12-54. Children 3-11 and seniors 55 plus can save a dollar or two with a discount on the ticket. Advance tickets can be purchased here. Residents of Jackson and Clay counties also are eligible for a discount.
If the zoo isn't your thing, perhaps a hayride and train ride at Carolyn's Pumpkin Patch in Liberty is more your speed. Or perhaps, you're looking to stay closer to home. Behka has some suggestions for four pumpkin patches in the Sedalia - Warrensburg area here.
