Join us at Boo at the Zoo!

This year, our group will be participating once again in Boo at the Zoo. Last year, unfortunately, was a total washout. We are hoping for better weather this year, although some of us did tough it out in the rain last year and had an AWESOME time regardless.

Date: October 24th
Location: Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
Time: 6:00 to 9:00 PM

Tickets can be purchased online at or at the zoo box office. Tickets MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE as this event sells out EVERY year. I have been attending this event for 7 years now and I can promise you, it will sell out and tickets will not be available the night of the event. So please, but your tickets in advance.

We will be meeting at the front entrance of the park by the ticket box office. We will meet at 5:45 and then will proceed into the park as a group. If they try to direct you to the back of the zoo to park, tell them you are meeting a large group at the front entrance and that you need to park in that area. This year, due to the size of our group, we will not be eating as a group inside of the zoo. It is so difficult to find places to eat during this event with as many people as we will have and with how crowded this event is every year. Please make sure you eat before coming. It’s just so much easier as the kids do NOT want to sit and eat because they can see all the fun activities going on. They want to GO!

Please RSVP to this event by October 16th so that I can make sure we have enough treat bags and prizes for all the children attending. I hope you all can come and I look forward to seeing you there!

If you are attending the Fort Rapids trip in February, I will be sending you information on how to book your room shortly. I am still awaiting our final group contract that contains this information from the person handling our trip at Fort Rapids. So please be patient and as soon as I receive the information, I will immediately pass it on to each of the families attending. We have 20 families signed up to attend this trip!

Lastly, in the last e-mail that I sent, I included an attachment of all the upcoming dates for our events. Please correct the date of the Christmas Party as the date is incorrect. The CORRECT date is Saturday, December 5th. I apologize for this mistake.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful fall and I am looking forward to seeing you all in October!! Please copy and paste the following RSVP for Boo at the Zoo if you are planning on attending. Thank you!
