Knoxville Zoo; Boo at the Zoo 2012

It is time for Boo at the Zoo 2012 at the Knoxville Zoo. For 26 years, this not-so-scary Halloween trick-or-treat event has been anticipated by children and parents. Kids can safely rake in the candy. Parents don't have to worry about anything except overindulgence.
