SANFORD, Fla., September 20, 2018 – Ghosts, goblins and ghouls planning on spooking their way through Sanford can mark their calendars to stop by the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens for their annual Halloween event presented by Orlando Health.
“We are excited to be able to bring this wildly popular event back for two weekends this year.” said Megan Shutts, the Zoo’s Events Manager. “Strong partnerships with organizations like Orlando Health, allow the Zoo to offer a safe environment for families with kids of any age to enjoy these fun events.”
Treat stations, a daily costume contest, an interactive bubble show, pumpkin bowling, crafts, activities, animal enrichment and more can be found throughout the Zoo each day.
