Zany zoo event concludes October

September 28, 2013 by  

No doubt aware of how much fun it can be to trick or treat amongst a full array of wild animals, children ages 2-12 can participate in ‘Boo at the Zoo’ at the National Zoo in Washington D.C.

The zoo will operate with extended hours during Halloween so the young crowd can collect candy from the animals’ stations. More than 40 trick-or-treat stations will be set up throughout the zoo, with the zookeepers being available to talk about the animals.

Fall decorations will ensure a festive environment as the spirited guests move through the zoo. The animals will be caged as per normal status, and rides will be available on the Conservation Carousel throughout the weekend of October 25, 26 and 27.

Sponsorships are available for the Boo at the Zoo event, as well as opportunities to distribute product samples to approximately 20,000 attendees. A sponsor will receive recognition on all promotional materials, as well as on cable TV ad spots, print ads, newsletters, and programs. Sponsors can also be included on banners, as banner printing will be provided by local print companies. Banners are posted throughout a venue and have potential for mass brand exposure.

Those sponsors donating treats will receive booth space at the zoo event so they can distribute products and information. The donating entities will be noted in the invitations and the event program materials.

Children are encouraged to come in costume to this safe, family-friendly event. Ticket prices are posted on the zoo’s website, along with parking information and other details.
