Erie Zoo impressed with turnout of 2021 ZooBoo

Local News

As ZooBoo wraps up at the Erie Zoo, organizers said this year’s turnout was great compared to last year.

Thursday, October 28th was the busiest night with more than 3,500 people showing up.

This year’s total attendance was very similar to 2019, which is what the zoo was hoping for.

ZooBoo is a very important fundraiser because it supports the Erie Zoo through the winter months.

“We are a non-profit and we do shut down for the winter, but our work does not stop. We still need to feed the animals. We still have to pay our staff to be here. So ZooBoo allows us to continue doing that,” said Emily Smicker, Erie Zoo.

Saturday, October 30th is the last day to head over to ZooBoo. The Zoo is open from noon until 9 p.m.
