Wild Animal Park turns into a haunted trail

October 26, 2007

Dougherty County -- Wild Animals and people got quite a scare Friday night at the Parks at Chehaw.

Ghosts and pirates roamed around the Wild Animal Park Friday night for Boo at the Zoo.

Pumpkins, spider webs and witches lurked in every corner. There were several stations set up with games for the children to play.

And of course, there was plenty of candy.

"This year the kids will be able to trick or treat at every exhibit. This is called the 'Trick or Treat Trail' and this is our grand re-opening of our Trick or Treat Trail. We have several different venders, businesses this year, new also this year that are passing out candy to the kids as well," said Special Events Coordinator, Sherrell Byrd.

Plenty of super heroes made appearances Friday night to keep all the goblins in line.

Admission to Boo at the Zoo is three dollars per person. It will be held again Saturday night.
