“Start your engines and prepare for some spooky family fun during Boo Drive Thru, sponsored by Mars Wrigley, a special edition of our children’s trick-or-treating event!
Hosted by Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ), Boo Drive Thru will be held October 24 and 25 from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. Pack your car full of ghouls, ghosts, princesses and superheroes and cruise down the Zoo’s North Road, all in support of FONZ’s mission.
“Boo at the Zoo is one of our most beloved events, and we wanted to be sure that children around the D.C. area have the opportunity to trick or treat at the Zoo this year–while focusing on safety,” says FONZ Executive Director Lynn Mento. “That’s why Boo Drive Thru was born. The whole family can still dress up, see some Halloween sights, and get plenty of delicious candy, all without leaving the car.”
On your drive, you will see witches, vampires, Count Pandula and other supernatural sights — and get a fun photo opportunity — before receiving treat bags stuffed with M&Ms, Twix and more candy. It’s bound to be a fantastic time!

Boo Drive Thru will be held rain or shine. Car passes are valid only on the day you choose when purchasing them. Each car can reserve up to six treat bags. Only family-size vehicles will be allowed to enter.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
