Franklin Park Zoo

Saturday, October 25 & Sunday, October 26, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Presented by the Empire Loan Charitable Foundation

Children throughout New England are invited to trick-or-treat among the animals. Thrills, chills and animals lurk around every corner on the Trick-or-Treat Trail with treats provided by companies including Honest Tea, Plum Organics, Pretzel Crisps, Bare Snacks and Cascadian Farms. Other haunted happenings include creepy crafts generously provided by Michaels of Braintree, ghoulish games, costume contests and a haunted maze!

Throughout the day, guests will learn about the importance of enrichment as they watch animals receive pumpkins, generously donated by Whole Foods Jamaica Plain, as enrichment items.

Make trick-or-treat collection boxes with UNICEF! For generations, kids have toted UNICEF's collection boxes door-to-door, raising over $170 million since 1950 to help children around the world—funds that have enabled UNICEF to save and improve children's lives by providing health care, improved nutrition, clean water, education and more.

The Empire Loan Charitable Foundation was created to support a wide range of community activities in and around the neighborhoods where Empire Loan operates.
