The Detroit Zoo’s annual “merry-not-scary” Zoo Boo celebration features a festively decorated half-mile trick-or-treat trail through the front of the park. Live, friendly entertainment awaits your costume-clad little ones in the Zoo Boo Revue tent, and they will be delighted to try their luck at the Ghouly Games Tent. Be sure to stop by the Haunted Reptile House and visit the ghosts and goblins that have made the Holden Reptile Conservation Center their home for the holiday season. And don’t miss the Zombie Zone featuring ghostly games and spooky activities sure to send a chill up your spine!
