Boo at the Zoo, the "not scary" event at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will be held Oct. 22-24 and Oct. 29-31.

Each weekend will feature candy stations, magicians, a haunted train ride, special themed regions of the Zoo and other Halloween activities.

In addition, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, the Green Lantern and the Joker will be on hand to help celebrate Halloween. These super-heroes will be performing shows and appearing in the zoo's Character Caravans.

Other shows include the Animals on Safari show that features dogs and cats that were rescued from local shelters and a Halloween themed program called "Creature Features" at the Animal Encounters Village.

The Zoo's animals will also get into the Halloween spirit, with pumpkin smashes on the two Saturdays of Boo at the Zoo.
