BOO AT THE ZOO
October 8- 30 (Weekends Only)
Elmwood Park Zoo
Bring your little ghouls and ghosts to this annual Halloween haunt, where the entire zoo is transformed for a kooky, spooky Halloween celebration!

And don’t forget to bring your trick-or-treat bag, as treat and activity stations will be located throughout the zoo. Tickets required.
WITCHES OF NARBERTH
Downtown Narberth welcomes children for a not-so-scary afternoon during Witches of Narberth.

Costumes are certainly welcome, but totally optional.
