PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Zoo is celebrating Halloween all week long with fun for all ages.

Boo! at the Zoo will take place from Oct. 20 to Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The week-long festival includes activities, a "click or treat" scavenger hunt, animal pumpkin stomp and chomps, and more.

The zoo also has seven themed pumpkin patches with photo opportunities.

For zoo-goers looking for a nighttime event, there will be a Howl-O-Week event Friday and Saturday night, October 24 and 25.

The event is $8 for members and $10 for the public.

Trails will be marked "merry" or "scary". Individuals can choose from more mild activities such as the Trick or Treat Trail, dance party, and carousel, or scarier activities including a haunted wagon ride and the Deserts of the Dead zombie graveyard.

The zoo is also bringing back the Eek-O-Friendly Costume Swap this year. Bring a gently-worn costume and swap it with other guests.
