River Safari’s trick or treat event returns with new live-action performances, free admission for kids and an enchanting night with fairy tale characters

SINGAPORE, 8 October 2015 – Dress up the kids in costume ball finery for the cutest trick or treat event in town, and be mesmerised as little ones dance and mingle with fairy tale characters at River Safari’s annual Safari Boo this October.

Back for the second year, Safari Boo 2015 will see River Safari transformed into a fantastical wonderland where kids can go trick-or-treating, discover river monsters at twilight and enjoy two specially themed presentations, among other festivities. Children aged 12 years and below enjoy free admission from 6pm* on event nights.

Ms Isabel Cheng, Chief Marketing Officer, Wildlife Reserves Singapore, said: “Safari Boo’s merry-not-scary proposition provides an opportunity for families and children to have trick or treat fun without the fright, and gives little ones and adults a chance to play make-believe and dress creatively. We are thrilled by the strong turnout during its launch last year, and look forward to welcoming more visitors this year with more characters, interactive discovery stations, performances and animal encounters for an educational and fun night.”

Safari Boo 2015 features two all-new shows titled Furry Tales and Be My Guests Royal Ball. Furry Tales puts a twist on familiar tales such as Snow White and Puss in Boots. Animal superstars will thrill audiences with their natural behaviours and friendly characters will showcase creatures such as the slithery snake and owl, and debunk the myths surrounding them. For fun fairy tale pageantry, join Fairy Godmother at Be My Guests Royal Ball where the best dressed will be crowned in this music-filled spectacle for kids.

More than 150 visitors, including costume-clad kids from Tao Nan School, Zhangde Primary School and Between Two Trees Preschool attended a special preview of River Safari’s annual Safari Boo on 7 October 2015. In addition to trick or treat trails and fairy tale characters such as Geppetto and Pinocchio (above), Safari Boo 2015 features interactive discovery stations and free admission for children aged 12 years and below from 6pm.
