It has been said, “when witches go riding and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers – `tis near Halloween.”

Halloween fun starts at the Toledo Zoo Thursday, Oct. 18, with the first day of Little Boo at the Zoo, sponsored by Meijer.
The two-day event is a chance for preschoolers to delight without the fright. Toddlers and pre-school aged children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes, trick-or-treat throughout the historic side of Zoo and enjoy crafts, puppet shows, strolling magic and free games sized just for them.


Tickets are currently on sale for Cameron Macintosh’s acclaimed production of “Les Misérables,” which will be presented April 9-14, 2019 at the Stranahan Theater.
