OKLAHOMA CITY—Rainy weather may have kept some folks away from the zoo but it didn’t dampen the spirits of those who made the trek.

In an effort to promote all things “green,” guests were invited to bring gently used Halloween costumes to swap for a new one.

It was all part of the Oklahoma City Zoo’s 1st Annual Costume Swap on Saturday.

The zoo is also offering a deal on admission; visitors should bring a pumpkin larger than their head and the admission fee is waived.

Candice Rennels, Marketing Manager at the Oklahoma City Zoo, said, “The pumpkins are used to help decorate for Haunt the Zoo for Halloween, which is happening October 26th through October 31st.”

Sunday is the last day to take advantage of the zoo’s big pumpkin drive for free admission.
