Blackpool Zoo gets into the Halloween mood

Halloween is being fully embraced this year by Blackpool Zoo and there are many ghostly activities that are going on. Half term will be filled with fun activities for children which include pumpkin carving, which will be happening at the Children’s Farm every morning.

Once they have carved their pumpkin out they are able to fill it with treats for the animals at the zoo, they will then be able to go around the various enclosures and offer the animals treats.

Pumpkin hunts are also going on everyday and children will have to go around all the animal enclosures to discover all of the pumpkins. In addition to these special Halloween activities there will also be all the usual events going on, this includes being able to learn about the animals as well as feed them. Children will also be able to interact with the animals in the Children’s Farm.

The marketing coordinator for the zoo is Jude Rothwell and she has said, “The events being run by the zoo this half term ensure that children will have an enjoyable day out. At Blackpool Zoo there is something for the whole family to enjoy.” For those who want to find out more about the activities that are taking place during the half term week then they can visit: www.blackpoolzoo.org.uk.
