We had an amazing time this weekend at the Wild Zoo Halloween Hero Day! The Wild Zoo Halloween runs throught 10/31. I don’t want to give up all the details and blow the suprises.

We had the chance to trick-or-treat for candy at the Treat Trails, view the amazing zooanimals, I meet Broomhilda the friendly witch and took photo’s, stopped by the Beauty Shop of Horrors, snapped photo’s of the giant-sized pumpkins, took the train ride and was entertained as we heard the spooky “Tale of the Twisted Tree”. This was just a tiny bit of what Wild Zoo Halloween event has in store for attendees so run and get your tickets after you review the details below:

Peanuts-Image

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.

Directed By: Steve Martino
