No Kidding, Halloween Nights are Perfect for … uh … Kids

Here’s the thing about kids: You can scar them. So this year take off the gory mask, put down the R.L. Stine novel and head to the Dallas Zoo (650 S. R.L. Thornton Freeway) for Halloween Nights. Each night is filled with animal attractions, trick-or-treating and a backward ride on the Haunted Carousel. Seriously, could this event be any more charming? No, actually it couldn’t. But when dressing your kids, let’s keep the costumes unrealistic. No need to lose a kid and gain a chimp, am I right? Halloween Nights are 5 to 7p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Tickets are $10.

Thursdays-Saturdays, 5-8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 27. Continues through Oct. 29, 2011
