Boo at the Zoo Kicks Off Oct. 12
Boo at the ZooOctober 5, 2012 - Celebrate the most spooktacular time of the year with your little monster at Knoxville's largest Halloween event! BOO! at the Zoo presented by U.S. Cellular kicks off 12 nights of safe and not-too-scary Halloween fun Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12-13 and continuing Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 18-21 and Thursday through Tuesday, Oct. 25- 30, from 5:30-8:00 p.m. each evening.

BOO! at the Zoo, a Halloween tradition for 26 years, is a family event featuring devilishly good music and games at the Monster Mash tent in The Clayton Family Kids Cove, friendly costumed characters throughout the zoo, and the only "haunted" carousel in East Tennessee, the Scary-Go-Round. (How can you tell it's haunted? It goes backwards, of course.)

It wouldn't be Halloween without the trick-or-treating! One of the highlights of BOO! at the Zoo is the BOO! Trail, where little trick-or-treaters can fill their bag with goodies as they make their way through the zoo. Each night of BOO! at the Zoo will also feature a variety of entertainment, from dancers and jugglers to out-ofthis- world STAR WARS characters. For updated information about each evening's activities, visit the zoo's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/knoxvillezoo.

Boo! at the Zoo tickets are $6 per person. Children under two are admitted free. Parking is $5. Tickets are available at in advance by phone at 865-637-5331, online at knoxvillezoo.org, or at the zoo's ticket office during regular zoo hours. Knoxville Zoo members receive a $1 discount on admission and free parking.

Tickets for BOO! at the Zoo can also be purchased at all Knoxville area Kroger stores. (Member discounts not available at Kroger locations.)
