The Pueblo Zoo said for the safety of everyone, fully covered adult masks or heavy makeup, balloons, weapons and weapon-like props: hatchets, baseball bats, or swords are prohibited. The Zoo will be closed to the public on Friday, October 28th in preparation for the members only BooBonus.

The Pueblo Zoo also reminds everyone to treat responsibly during Halloween, and buy candy from brands that use sustainable palm oil, like Hershey’s or Mars brands. The zoo said palm oil production is harmful to the rainforest habitats, and it hurts endangered species like orangutans.
