Hattiesburg Zoo brings safe trick-or-treating to Pine Belt

Posted: Updated:
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Every year during October, the Hattiesburg Zoo brings safe, family-friendly trick-or-treating to the Pine Belt.

As a Halloween tradition, the Hattiesburg Zoological Society in partnership with The Hattiesburg Convention and Tourism Commission feature seven nights of Zoo Boo.

Providing frighteningly fun adventures, the Zoo encourages children to wear their Halloween costumes and explore the Zoo Boo game stations.

"We have a series of games for the kids to play and cards for them to work through, and at the end they get a prize," said Anita Wright of The Hattiesburg Convention Commission. "It's just a different option and a different way to celebrate Halloween all in one place and most importantly it's safe."

Zoo Boo will be going on every day until Halloween day from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The kids play all the games for only $5.
