AKRON — Families and volunteers enjoyed Boo at the Zoo at the Akron Zoo this past weekend.

Shown at far right at one of the stations are volunteers Dean Thayer and Marge Arrant, dressed as a king and queen, as they provide treats for Lizzy Nemeth, 3, who is with her mother, Shannon Nemeth, of Coshocton.

Zoo educator Linda Van Fossen, of Akron, was also on hand and dressed as a moon jelly fish to tie in with the zoo’s reef exhibit, as shown at near right.

Boo at the Zoo continues for the next two weekends at the zoo. For more information, call the Akron Zoo at 330-375-2550 or visit www.akronzoo.org.
