OAKLAND (BCN) — The Oakland Zoo’s Halloween-themed Boo at the Zoo event starts Saturday and will continue through the end of the month. The family-friendly program at the zoo in the Oakland hills offers a scavenger hunt where people can look for animal trading cards. Finishers of the scavenger hunt will receive a limited-release trading card and a candy bar.

Visitors are encouraged to dress in costumes as long as they are not inflatable ones that can scare the zoo animals, and can enter a costume contest by tagging Oakland Zoo on social media. The winners will receive four tickets to the holiday Glowfari lantern festival at the zoo from November through January.
