Comments: Hello! We are bringing back Boo at the Zoo, Tuesdays through Sundays from 10/15 – 10/30. The event takes place from 5 pm – 9 pm and we are expecting between 1500-3500 guests per night. We’d love to have at least one 501st character sign up (with no more than 6) per night. For precaution, we are requesting priority for characters whose costumes include full face masks. Characters that do not have face masks built into the costume are also welcome but will need to wear a mask at the event. Blasters are okay as long as they are just for looks and not the CO2 type that shoots fireworks or anything. We are hoping to set up some photos but guests and characters will be separated by a stanchion and properly distanced.
