    Boo at the Akron Zoo is a non-scary trick or treat experience for all ages that runs Saturdays and Sundays at the Akron Zoo. Treaters will have a candy passport allowing them to collect candy at each station. Volunteers staff each treat station and are paired with a zoo volunteer (EdZOOcator). This allows questions or concerns to be addressed quickly. 

    *We will contact you after October 1st with further instructions! If you have to cancel before then, please let us know!
