Ready for a scare? (Or more likely, lots of laughs?) If you’re in the Columbia area of South Carolina, you won’t want to miss Riverbanks Zoo and Garden’s Boo at the Zoo.

Always a great pitstop for families, Riverbanks is throwing a party all next week! From the official website: The family-friendly Halloween event runs from 6 to 9pm each evening. Children 12 and under are invited to wear costumes for a spook-fest complete with Frankenstein’s Foam Zone, an eeky freaky DJ dance party and a trick-or-treat trail with candy and more! Kids can also venture inside the Crow’s Nest Hay Maze, ride on the haunted carousel and explore the zoo at night!

Event dates: October 23 – 30, 6:00-9:00pm

Distance off the interstate: Right off of I-126.

Hours and Admission Prices: Tickets (must be purchased in advance): $6 for zoo members, $8 for general public.
