Boo at the Zoo

Stone Zoo

Saturday, October 17 & Sunday, October 18, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Generously presented by the Empire Loan Charitable Foundation

Children throughout New England are invited to trick-or-treat among the animals. Thrills, chills and animals lurk around every corner on the Trick-or-Treat Trail, which will feature delicious treats, compliments of Necco. Creepy crafts will be generously provided by Michaels of Stoneham. Throughout the day, people can learn about the importance of enrichment as they watch as many of the animals receive pumpkins, generously donated by Whole Foods Market Melrose. Haunted happenings include:

  • Creepy crafts
  • Ghoulish games
  • Costume contests
  • Haunted maze

The Empire Loan Charitable Foundation was created to support a wide range of community activities in and around the neighborhoods where Empire Loan operates.
