NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Zoo is seeking help with an annual Halloween event for children.
Volunteers and vendors are being sought for Zoo Boo, which is designed to give kids a safe environment for trick or treating.
The annual event is set for Oct. 26 at the zoo in Norfolk. The activities include costume contests, hayrides and animals smashing pumpkins.
