Now that we’re all cozy with the Greenville Zoo and their Giraffe Cam, we get to do some fun stuff that’s not necessarily giraffe-related. Such as Boo in The Zoo. In case you’re not familiar, Boo is the perfect place to bring your little ones during Halloween season. And this year is their 30th anniversary.
I’ll be there with some friends, maybe a few folks from the office as we try to convince 30,000 kids (that’s what they’re predicting) over two weekends that they should practice good dental hygiene, while they’re knee-deep in Candy Season. Sure, call me crazy.
So here’s the details. Boo in The Zoo takes place the weekends of October 21-23 and October 28-30. You’ll need to buy tickets but they’re very reasonable and you’re going to get a lot for your six bucks. For safety reasons, no plastic pumpkins, bags or sacks. Instead, Harvest Hope Food Bank will provide special treat bags for the kids. The city is asking folks to park at County Square, they’ll have plenty of transportation to bring everyone back and forth to the Zoo.
And I’ll bet you didn’t know that giraffes have FOUR stomachs. They really shouldn’t eat candy and they’re vegetarians. They love acacia leaves, fruits, nuts, berries, shrubs, and grass. But they probably eat a few bugs with all that grass and leaves so they’re not what I’d call strict vegetarians. Oh, and an adult giraffe needs about 65 pounds of that stuff a day. That, my friends is a LOT of grass!
So are you coming to Boo in The Zoo? Boo has become immensely popular so over the years the zoo has made changes with respect to what you can and cannot bring in and where you should park. If you’re going, please click here, buy your tickets, and read the fine print. That way you know where to park and that the Zoo will provide a goodie bag to everyone.
And if you or someone you know is looking for a great Pediatric Dentist, one that happens to know that giraffes would eat a boatload of blueberries if they had the chance, just click here then give us a call. See y’all at the Greenville, SC Zoo.
