Ferrara Candy Company Treats Local Kids to Annual Boo! at the Zoo

Chicago Tribune

As the sponsor of this year's Brookfield Zoo Boo! at the Zoo event, Ferrara Candy Company has coordinated with local park districts in neighboring communities to provide a sweet treat to local families. Registration is now open for residents of the Park District of Forest Park to be among the 220 individuals that Ferrara will sponsor (55 people each day over the four days), receiving complimentary admission to Boo! at the Zoo, round-trip transportation from the Park District of Forest Park and special treats, events and activities for participants over the four days of Boo! at the Zoo events (October 22 & 23 and October 29 & 30th).

Ferrara Candy Company employees will be staffing Halloween-themed trick-or-treat stations with more than 250 volunteers throughout the Boo! at the Zoo event and the company will be donating over 10,000 pounds of candy to help zoo guests have an even sweeter time at this popular Halloween event.

Boo! at the Zoo activities will be held Saturdays and Sundays, October 22-23 and October 29-30, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and the zoo remains open until 6:00 p.m. on these days. The Halloween extravaganza will feature not-so-scary, fun-filled festivities for the entire family.
