Boo at the Zoo

Spook-tacular Fun at Boo at the Zoo

Today might be Halloween, but here at Family Circle we’ve been anticipating this holiday for a while by brewing up our recipes and spooky decor tips.

Halloween fans that we are, when we got to sponsor some pre-October 31st fun at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo we were super excited. Boo at the Zoo is the annual month-long Halloween celebration that includes some (not-so) scary thrills like treat stations, a hay maze and the Extinct & Endangered Species Graveyard.

We hosted a spook-tacular 3-D pumpkin-carving demonstration, face painting and a seasonal crafts table where boys and girls of all ages got to create their own masks to take home. Even our editor in chief, Linda Fears, and our executive editor, Darcy Jacobs, got in on the Halloween fun.

At a pre-festivities VIP brunch, children were transformed into characters of all kinds by our master face painters. This girl becomes a ghoul.
