ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of youngsters got wild Friday night for Halloween festivities at Chehaw park.

Boo at the Zoo attracted kids for treats and ghoulish educational activities.

Witches and goblins roamed the park for several hours of fun.

It only cost $5. Workers say it's a safer than trick or treating on the streets.

"It's just the absolute ambiance of the park at night lit up and decorated for one of our favorite holidays, it's a safe environment all our gates are controlled, the candy is controlled it's given out by volunteers who have all been screened," said Clint Murphy, Guest Services Supervisor.

Boo at the zoo continues tomorrow from six until nine. Then it's the grown-ups turn for Halloween fun.

Chehaw will host Brew at the Zoo, a social gathering for anyone over 21, starting at nine thirty.
