Buttonwood Park Zoo's "Boo at the Zoo" fundraiser dares area residents to enjoy a family friendly event at the zoo every weekend in October.

The first night of the annual event kicks off Friday night, and Overnight Coordinator Larissa Correia tells WBSM News the zoo keeps the fright-factor to a minimum for the whole family to enjoy..

"Boo at the Zoo" features a haunted trail for the older kids, along with an enchanted forest, a hay maze, and activities for all ages.

"Boo at the Zoo" runs every weekend in October, from 6-9pm.
