If it's mid-October, then it must be "Boo at the Zoo" time again!

For Halloween fun without the fright, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is presenting its annual "Boo at the Zoo" event this weekend and next. Boo festivities take place tonight from 5 to 9 p.m., then tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The same time schedule is repeated next weekend, Oct. 24-26.

New this year: A live-action Spider-Man show. This action-packed performance features Wolverine, Storm, Captain America and, of course, Spider-Man, as they battle the devious Green Goblin. Two evening shows are available without additional cost every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Boo. Catered "Super Hero Lunches" can be reserved for additional purchase.

The rest of the park will be enchanted with other merry, not scary, attractions. Asia Quest will be transformed into the magical "Frogwortz" Academy, and North America will become Creepy Hollow. Colo's Cove events area will become Little Boo Village – complete with treat stations, a candy castle and a hay maze – and a skeleton diver will even tell grand fish tales at Eerie Shores.

Boo at the Zoo will also be crawling with photo opportunities, from posing with superheroes to cuddling with costumed character ambassadors. Guests younger than 13 years old and their guardians are encouraged to wear costumes, however, parents and guardians cannot wear costumes that cover their faces.
