If your little goblins are currently wearing their costumes and already hepped up on candy corn, you could burn off some of their Halloween fervor for cheap at Pumpkin Prowl Nights
at the Saint Louis Zoo in Forest Park (314-781-0900 or www.stlzoo.org
). From 5 to 9 p.m. every evening between Saturday, October 20, and Tuesday, October 30, kids can sport their costumes while touring Pirates Cove and Boneyard Park, make a creepy craft and ride the transformed Scare-ou-sel. Its a non-scary, total-fun experience for the whole family; well, mostly for the kids, but itll keep 'em from tearing up the house. Admission is free, but some events (night hikes, Conservation Carousel) do require cash.
