Hi,

We are visiting from Australia and happen to be there over Halloween (from Oct 30 onwards)

If you would recommend one or two events to participate in for us, which would it be? My son is nearly 5 and will have a costume :)

Thanks!
Nicole

I talked to the coordinator of the Boo in the Zoo Event and it sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’d also recommend trick-or-treating at one of the malls. Enjoy your visit!

My 6 yr old has suddenly this year become scared of spooky masks. Looking for something fun to do with her. Thinking about Boo in the Zoo.
