Albany -- Costume clad creatures took over the Parks at Chehaw Zoo tonight. It was the annual Boo at the Zoo event.
When you go to the zoo you can expect to see a lion, a tiger, even a bear. But today there was a princess, king, and even a bubble bath.
It's the annual Boo at the Zoo event at the Parks at Chehaw.
"I'm so happy about Halloween!"
The children dressed up, and they came to the zoo, but not so much for the animals this time.
Destiny Trimal came dressed up as a witch and shares what her favorite part of the event. "That you get to get candy," said Destiny Trimnal.
Boo at the Zoo is all about the candy, the costumes, and a learning experience for the children.
Some learned about snakes, while others took a look inside the mad scientist's laboratory to learn about other creatures.
Many got on stage to be judged in the costume contest.
"It's fun, we're getting candy. I'm kinda surprised I didn't win the contest, but there's always another one," said Austin Dunbar.
The next Boo at the Zoo event happens on Halloween night, and it starts at 6:30 and runs until 9:30.
