Palm Oil Free Candy Halloween Zoo Event

EL PASO, Texas – The El Paso Zoo presents Boo at the Zoo - El Paso’s wildest trick-or-treat in town on October 26 -27 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. This family-friendly event provides a safe environment to have some ZOO-rrific fun. Enjoy the glow-in-the-dark Creepy Crawler Critter Corner, candy stations, pumpkin bowling, inflatable games, a maze, more than 20 animal enrichment activities and much more. Visit the Asian Discovery Center for story time along with arts and crafts presented by the El Paso Public Library. Guests will also be able to watch as zoo animals get their own pumpkins to celebrate and squish before eating them. The first 2,000 kids each day will receive a candy bag. Activities and candy stations are provided at no cost with paid admission.

Boo at the Zoo will provide palm oil free candy at each candy station for the second year. Zoo guests will discover how they can help slow down tropical habitat destruction through their informed shopping choices. Palm oil is a food additive from the palm nut grown in the tropics. Because people purchase products that have palm oil as an ingredient, companies continue to require more rain forest habitat to be replaced with palm oil plantations. In Asia, these forests are or were once home to orangutans, elephants and thousands of other valuable and threatened animals.
