CINCINNATI – Calling all little ghouls and boys, don’t miss HallZOOween, presented by Frisch’s Big Boy, October 8-9, 15-16 & 22-23, from Noon – 5 p.m. at the Cincinnati Zoo & BOO-tanical Garden.  Children (12 and under) are encouraged to dress up in their wildest costumes and fill up their goodie bag as they trick-or-treat through the Zoo. Help the Zoo Go Green and bring your own goodie bag!  Along the way, you may encounter Pumpkin Pandemonium – the Zoo’s animal version of trick-or-treating.

The Search for the Golden Frisch’s Big Boy is also back for 2011!  Two golden big boy statues will be hidden somewhere in Zoo each day of HallZOOween.  The two lucky visitors that find them will get to choose from a Frisch’s prize package or a Cincinnati Zoo prize package, both valued at $150.  All 12 winners will be automatically registered to win the Grand Prize – a behind the scenes tour of the Cincinnati Zoo (value: priceless)!

Your little goblins can get their fingers painted or get a cool Zoo tattoo in the Beauty Shop of Horrors, sponsored by SuperCuts.  The Zoo also invites guests to experience one of the area’s best magical entertainers – Phil Dalton’s Theater of Illusion.  He will play tricks on your minds and your eyes. The show takes place each Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the Wings of Wonder Theater.  In addition Zoo guests will also enjoy Giant Pumpkin Carving Demonstrations, Frisch’s Pumpkin Patch, Halloween Animal Meet & Greets, spooktacular Train Rides and the Scare-ousel.
