The Orange County Zoo throws a party to get the animals in the mood for Halloween. Activities include trick-or-treating, spooky crafts, a scavenger hunt, and face painting for kids under the age of 12. The animals, meanwhile, get to munch on treat-filled pumpkins throughout the day.
Children are encouraged to come in costume, and the first 100 trick-or-treaters receive a special gift. Note that devil sticks, swords, and other weapon-like accessories are not allowed, for the safety of the animals.
