On Saturday and Sunday, October 25th and 26th, from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Oakland Zoo will be holding it's annual "Boo At The Zoo" event, which is always a popular time for families to enjoy the Zoo, and participate in Halloween activities at the same time.  This year, the program will be supplemented by the Bay Area Science Festival, who promise to add a scientific spin to many of the events.  
Costumes are encouraged for everyone, and all children in costume from 2 to 14 years of age, will receive a free spooky train ride ticket.  To encourage costumes still more, there will be a costume parade at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. with Roosevelt, the Zoo mascot.  

Of course, you can always tour the zoo at any time during the day--in fact, there will be two Wildlife Theater Encounters offered.  But, unlike most weekends,  this will be one where you can attend Trick or Treat stations, create goodies for the Zoo animals to eat, enjoy  Halloween crafts and face painting, and  meet members of the Oakland Fire and Police Department. Also available will be a special exhibit from the Science Festival Committee that focuses on animal "creepy crawlies"
