If I had to rank the best parts of Halloween in order, I would say:

  1. Candy
  2. Costumes
  3. Parties

It can be pretty spooky, but overall it's a fun holiday. And this year, NIabi Zoo is once again helping out the Quad Cities when it comes to number three. Boo at the Zoo is returning for TWO nights! But this year, it'll be just before Halloween itself.

According to WQAD, this year’s event will happen on Saturday, October 26th and Sunday, October 27th. The party will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the zoo, and promises to be no-so-scary for the kids (but still full of treats, as the kids go around to each part of the fest).

Adults ages 13-61 can get in for $9.00, while those 62+, as well as all military personnel can enter for $8.00. Children ages 3-12 receive admission for $6.50, and those two and under get in for free.

Niabi Zoo members and FunBundle and Zooseum pass holders are also free!
