The annual Staten Island halloween event Spooktacular took over the Staten Island Zoo last weekend. The local event is a hotspot for Staten Island families seeking family fun, even attracting families from other boroughs as it grows in popularity each passing year.
Year-round zoo attractions, including "The Africa and Tropical Forest Wings," "The Otter Tunnel," and "The Kid's Korral," were transformed into designated trick and treat zones, performance spaces, and halloween-themed attractions.
The most infamous attractions at Spooktacular never fail to be Halloween Town, Monster Alley, and Candy Land, decorated with lifelike bats, spider webs, and skulls. Not to mention the tremendous number of volunteers who dressed up as ghosts, zombies, and skeletons and helped bring out the Halloween spirit! The two-night event scares over a thousand visitors who walk away with treats, prizes, and crafts.
This year, Broadway Stages was excited to be part of Spooktacular as a sponsor. We would like to thank the incredible combined efforts of fellow sponsors and volunteers in helping creating the best Spooktacular fun for Staten Island families. We look forward to helping make next year's Spooktacular even more spooky and spectacular!
