Events are back all across Western New York and this past weekend lots of 716ers had a chance to help out the Buffalo Zoo and get a bit of a scare as we head into Halloween with the Buffalo Zoo's Boo Bash.

Boo Bash returned to the Buffalo Zoo this year after being suspended last year due to COVID-19. This year's Boo Bash was a bit different than in years past as your ticket got you into the zoo and you also had a chance to sample 6 different Halloween theme treats and 6 different Halloween theme drinks.

I have the chance to check it out along with my wife Elizabeth and my in-laws and I will say we will be going back next year. The weather was perfect this weekend for Boo Bash but the new format was even better.

The Buffalo Zoo had food and drink stations scattered across the zoo's you could go and see all the exhibits and still enjoy your drink and your food. As you walked in you were greeted by staff members in costumes and you were handed your Boo Bash map.

On the map were the location of each food and drink station. You would go and walk around and then at each station get your map stamped as you enjoyed the food or drink. The entire trip around the zoo to collect all the food and drink was around 2 hours.

The zoo also had actors through the zoo playing the role of zombies, witches, and mummies to keep up the Halloween scariness. Plus they even had a sword swallower who did two shows during the event.

Boo Bash was a 21+ event, but the Zoo does have some kid-friendly events coming up this month to celebrate Halloween. Get all the details HERE
