Lions, Tigers, and Scares

At the zoo, kids trick-or-treat with beasts.


Lions, Tigers, and Scares At the zoo, kids trick-or-treat with beasts. Sure, trick-or-treating is all right, but nothing beats begging for goodies in the company of wild animals. The Cleveland Metroparks and Akron Zoos' respective Boo at the Zoo events are now in full swing, and each offers a pumpkin-shaped bucket's worth of cavity-causing delight.

The Metroparks festivities feature a Creepy Crawly Critter Show, while Akron offers a costume party. And both include meet-and-greets with many of the zoo's residents.
Thursdays-Sundays, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 19. Continues through Oct. 29
