John Ball Zoo is getting ready for Halloween by pulling out all of their spooky critters for Zoo Goes Boo!

Kids can wander throughout the park collecting candy from treat booths, see special animal demos and exhibits, and watch some live entertainment. Costumes are highly encouraged so guests can get the whole Halloween experience.

Zoo Goes Boo is happening on October 21 though 23, and October 28 through 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Admission for this even costs $8 per person, but $3 for zoo members.

Zoo members will be able to attend an exclusive event, Monster Mash, on October 20 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. There will be Halloween festivities including a storyteller, stilt walker, juggler, and a human statue.

Tickets for Monster Mash cost $9 and are limited.
