Children throughout New England are invited to trick-or-treat among the animals. Thrills, chills, and animals lurk around every corner on the Trick-or-Treat Trail, which will include candy from UNREAL Candy. Other haunted happenings include creepy crafts, ghoulish games, costume contests, and a haunted maze! Throughout the day, people can learn about the importance of enrichment as they watch as many of the animals receive pumpkins, generously donated by Whole Foods Melrose, as enrichment items.

MAGIC 106.7, Zoo New England’s 2013 radio partner, will be onsite on October 19 with music, games and prizes. Also on October 19, be sure to join the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts for fun crafts at Boo at the Zoo.

Zoo New England is pleased to partner with Green Halloween® for this year’s festivities.
