Fall in Love with the Zoo! Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society Announces Boo 2020 and Zoo Attraction Openings
WEST PALM BEACH - October 8, 2020 - Fall in Florida is a great time to get outdoors and connect with nature and your family at Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society. Both animals and humans will enjoy special fall treats this season and the reopening of several Zoo attractions.
Grab your masks (facial coverings), and put on your costume! On October 30 and 31, the Zoo will feature a daytime, not-so-scary, socially-distanced Halloween event, Boo 2020! A DJ will be playing family-friendly hits each day in the Fountain Plaza. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes and take part in costume contests. Prizes include Zoo Lights tickets and family memberships. Please note: Due to CDC recommendations, Boo 2020 will not include candy trick or treating. Boo 2020 is included in regular daytime admission, and Zoo members are free. Become a Zoo member today to enjoy all the benefits at www.palmbeachzoo.org/membership.
In October, the Tropics Cafe concessions window and food carts will feature fall-inspired treats such as apple cider and seasonal brews. The animal residents will also get in on the fall festivities with special enrichments prepared by their zoologists. The animals will enjoy spiced up enrichments including pumpkin playtime and snack time.
The carousel and train are ready to welcome back riders with social-distancing and mask requirements. Nature Play is open as well as both gift shops. Tropics Cafe indoor dining is available for seating at 50% capacity.
Animals notice the changing winds and milder temperatures just like humans. The Malayan tiger cub trio are five months old and becoming even more active. They have taken to “greeting” visitors at the front of the habitat. These adorable siblings are learning skills from their mom, Api, that will teach them to hone their natural instincts. They are often spotted playing “tag” with mom, stalking and pouncing on each other.
