Also going on at the Zoo on October 26: Barktoberfest!
Barktoberfest is a pet adoption event and marketspace from 11am to 3pm at the Berson Education Center at Essex County Turtle Back Zoo. Our very own Zoological Society of New Jersey created this event as a way to give back to our community and to highlight some wonderful folks and organizations that are dedicated to helping pets find their forever homes. Now in its fourth year, Barktoberfest keeps growing, adding more vendors and sponsors. Please join us for a lovely day. The rain date for Barktoberfest is October 27 (Spooky Storytime is only on October 26).
