Get Your Last Wild Scare at the L.A. Zoo
This is the last weekend you can take your kids out to get their last wild scare at the L.A. Zoo. "Boo at the L.A. Zoo" is free with paid admission and this is the last weekend it's running - usually runs all weekends-only in October from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
And you're in luck! On the last two weekends in October, additional trick-or-treat candy stations will be added throughout the grounds. So expect additional Trick-or-Treating on October 26 and 27. Sponsored by 99 Cents Only Stores.
What is especially attracting to me is that the admission to the Los Angeles Zoo is still so affordable compared to other attractions, at $22 for general admission (ages 13 to 61), $19 for seniors (ages 62+), and $17 for children (ages 2 to 12). No ticket is required for children under 2.
