My First Giveaway: 6 Tickets to Bronx Zoo!

I love Halloween, and I've always wanted to go to the Bronx Zoo's "Boo at the Zoo" event but we haven't made it yet.

This year, I've got tickets to give away, and I'm putting it on the calendar for us on Sunday--we may even take DB's friend who's coming for a playdate.

It sounds even more fun than what I thought I knew -- there's a hay ride, hay maze, batty theater, "Haunted Safari Adventure," magic, pumpkin carving demos, and of course crafts. Kids in wildlife costume get in free. DuckyBoy's Transformers outfit doesn't counts as wildlife (how about if he was a DinoBot, I wonder?), but I do know other kids whose interests run more to the animal kingdom. (Oh, and there's a photo contest for best wildlife costume that has a whole boatload of tickets as the prize.) The Aquarium has fun stuff for the weekend too.

Anyway, the giveaway! Courtesy of the Bronx Zoo, I have 6 tickets that can be split up any way we want. Two were for me and Db but since we've got a membership I'm adding them to the giveaway!

So we can do 3 and 3 or 4 and 2 all 6 together. (I already know somebody who'd love 3!)

Here's the catch, you've got to use them Saturday.

If you want an alternative to daytime trick-or-treating on Saturday, or something seasonal to do while you wait for an evening candy roundup, just leave a comment below and tell me what your kid(s) are going to be this year for Halloween, and how many tickets you'd like. Thursday night at 10 pm ET, I'll use a random-number generator to pick a winner, and then another if they're not all gone!

I've got the tickets at my place in Queens, and will make sure you get them by Saturday or Sunday.

Good luck and BOO!

I'd love to win them, but since I live in Austin, I don't think I'll be able to make it to the Bronx by Saturday. Sigh. I'm desperate for a trip to NYC.

We would love to take our Lady Bug Gwen to the Zoo. Sounds like the perfect idea for Halloween. All 6 tickets would be much appreciated!
