Bay Area Science Festival Teams Up with Oakland Zoo
For the third year in a row, the Bay Area Science Festival has helped make this Halloween event a science-themed weekend - featuring a scavenger hunt-style trick or treating adventure, up-close animal encounters, spooky interactive stations, and a Wildlife Theater presentation focused on creepy crawly animals.
Child friendly activities will take place throughout the Zoo, including a treat table where families can create Halloween goodies for the Zoo’s animals.
Boo at the Zoo is a day-time opportunity for families to bring out their noble Ninja Turtles, tiny Tinker Bells, precious Princesses, and spectacular Superheroes to an outdoor adventure filled with spooktackular fun.
