Howloween at the Zoo is a staple and happens every year at the Binghamton at Ross Park. This is the perfect event for families because it's less boo and more zoo. This event will have many activities for kids between the ages of 3 and 10. There will be pumpkin bowling, a pirate ring toss and more. Kids will collect gold coins and at the end can win prizes and candy.
There will also be Halloween craft stations, a costume contest and more. Pumpkins will be available for purchase, and kids can paint them if they want.
