Great Plains Zoo hosting annual 'ZooBoo'

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Every year, the Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum of Natural History thrill kids and adults alike with ZooBoo, a three-night Halloween extravaganza.

Organizers say costumed kids and their families will wind their way through the decorated exhibits and walkways in the Zoo collecting candy and trinkets at a variety of treat tents with costumed presenters

“ZooBoo is a safe, non-scary event for the whole family,” said Elizabeth A. Whealy, Great Plains Zoo president and CEO. “The Zoo provides a great atmosphere, and our staff and sponsors make sure everyone has more than enough treats to take home.”
