The Greenville Zoo is excited to have Future Scholar as the 2017 title sponsor of Boo in the Zoo, the Greenville Zoo’s signature Halloween event. Future Scholar Boo in the Zoo takes place October 20-22 & 27-29. The event will feature more than 20 trick-or-treat stations; character photo opportunities, including princesses and super heroes; an extinct species graveyard and a Not-Very-Scary House sponsored by ScanSource. The event site will also include a new area called Dragon Alley.
Event hours are 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free for Member Adults (age 15+), $7 for Member Trick-or-Treaters, $6 for Non-member Adults and $8 for Non-member Trick-or-Treaters. Admission for Boo Babies (age 0-2) is free. Corporate group rates are also available. Tickets go on sale September 11 and can be purchased at the Greenville Zoo ticket booth or online at https://boointhezoo.eventbrite.com. Children must be accompanied by an adult and everyone is invited to come in costume. For safety reasons, attendees are asked not to bring plastic pumpkins, Halloween bags or sacks. Instead, the zoo will provide special commemorative trick-or-treat bags for the children.
The Greenville Zoo will again offer a free park and ride service to transport attendees from County Square to the Greenville Zoo and back, with buses running continuously between the two locations from one hour before the event until 9 p.m. Attendees are strongly encouraged to utilize the free service, as parking will not be permitted on Woodland Way or Woodland Way Circle and parking in Cleveland Park is limited.
