Ghosts and goblins gathered on Saturday, October 29th for the annual Boo at the Zoo at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo. Little ones dressed up in their Halloween costumes for a fun afternoon of trick-or-treating and learning about the zoo’s many educational exhibits. In addition to candy gathering, those participating were entertained with games, activities and an art project. A contest was held with prizes awarded to the best monkey and Pokémon costumes as this year’s theme was PokéMonkee. This community event is sponsored by the Louisiana Purchase Zoological Society with support from the City of Monroe.
