As you may (or likely, may not) know, my family has been a member of the Brookfield Zoo every since our kids were old enough to appreciate it. It’s always a super easy day out: the kids love it, we love it, easy to get to, easy to park, and the membership pays for itself in just a few visits. It’s honestly a no-brainer for any family.
There are some times during the year getting to to the Brookfield Zoo is even more fun than normal. Christmas time is my FAVORITE. But a very close second is Boo at the Zoo, where each weekend in October you can enjoy Halloween themed areas and activities!
I’m happy to announce BOO AT THE ZOO IS NOW OPEN!
Check out all the things you can do!
The famous carousel even gets a Halloween make-over!
