Snakes, spiders, lizards, tigers, lions and other inhabitants get into the spooky spirit at Boo at the L.A. Zoo, the Los Angeles Zoo & Botanical Gardens' annual, monthlong Halloween celebration, which is just creepy enough but not too scary for kids. Activities during the week feature dim caverns, animal feeding stations, a haunted gallery for photo ops and a cornstalk maze. Bonus attractions on the weekends include crafts, pumpkin carving, science demonstrations, roaming costumed characters, a puppet show hosted by a mad scientist and a block party with break dancers, DJs and games.
