Pumpkin Prowl tickets are now on sale!

Your zoo membership won’t get you into this after-hours event, but buying your tickets from Bartells will get you $2.00 off the admission costs. No word yet on the event website as to what the schedule will be, just vague promises of “live entertainment” and “treats” for the little ones. This is a disppointment, as this is the first Pumpkin Prowl in two years and I’m really not sure what to expect.

Folks are welcome to come in costume, but are asked to leave toy weapons at the door and to keep it family-friendly. I’m really looking forward to checking it out, and think it’ll give Moon a sort of dry-run on the whole trick-or-treat concept. (She’s getting into the spirit of things though. She started a wordless rendition of “This is Halloween” when she spotted the holiday goods in Target today. I’m so proud.)

If you’re not up for paying to attend an animal-free zoo event, a walk around the zoo’s Family Farm during normal hours should give you a peek at the elaborate carved pumpkins created by zoo staff and a chance to catch the lions, and tigers and bears (oh my!). We did this two years ago when the last Pumpkin Prowl took place, and really enjoyed seeing the amazing carvings by zoo staff (the multi-pumpkin snake stands out in my memory as a great example).
