San Francisco Zoo Halloween Horror

San Francisco Zoo‘s annual “Boo at the Zoo” Halloween night is promoted this year with a spooky classic horror film. Taking inspiration from Hollywood’s 1950s B movies, the campaign encourages viewers to get out of the house. The two nights at the zoo, however, promised more of the creepy crawly theme, with a first-hand look at snakes and owls and a walk through the Creepy Crawly Critter Encounter at the Insect Zoo. The Zoo does request that trick-or-treaters not wear rubber masks as they may frighten the animals.
