As you can see, baby goat didn't quite know what to make of this whole costume thing. (Don't worry a geek costume will be debuted later this month, but thanks to Anti-Supermom for lending us this adorable frog costume!)
At the zoo they have a story book village and a pirate area as well as a wide variety of people in costume handing out treats. The treat stations were sponsored and manned by various local businesses which was nice to see. Plus, the treats weren't all candy which I appreciated, but I was surprised that several of the items had peanuts (including a station sponsored by Fisher's nuts) so if you do go beware that it isn't nut free. Here is baby goat at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party!
Checking out the action from Dad's shoulders!
A Pirate looking shifty...
Grandma is never very good at following directions...
A kid in a homemade costume! I wish people did these more often. They are great. So I had to run and get a picture (or rather send Mr. Goat to get a picture)
Baby goat really was crabby until his face got in the sign.
A one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater...duh!
Baby goat doesn't quite know what to make of all the costumes!
The graveyard of extinct animals...sad :(
Still as a big believer that the Zoo is a great asset to the community it is nice to know that this fundraiser can help support them, plus it is just a fun safe way to get in costume and have some Halloween fun. The Zoo Boo runs this weekend, Oct 22, 23, and 24th from 4:30-7:30 and tickets are $7. It was fun to go and I think it is worth the money, plus you support a great zoo.
(We received complimentary tickets to go to Zoo Boo and review it on the blog. Thanks Como Zoo!)
