Brooklyn, N.Y.: The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Prospect Park Zoo is hosting its annual Boo at the Zoo, a family-friendly Halloween extravaganza, all day Saturday, Oct. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 31. Festivities include costumes, arts and crafts, and treats for the animals.
The baboon troop’s two-month old infants, Jabari and Azizi, will have their first chance to trick-or-treat as pumpkins will be scattered throughout their exhibit.
No Halloween celebration is complete without bats. The zoo’s new nocturnal exhibit provides the perfect setting for a dark and creepy look into the world of these fascinating flying creatures of the night.
