With Halloween just around the corner, Washington, D.C. has a great deal of festivities and celebrations planned for all ages! Before you ask Google what’s happening for Halloween during your stay, I highly suggest asking your Capella Washington, D.C. Personal Assistant. After all, that is what they are here for! Your Personal Assistant will happily curate every imaginable aspect of your stay, even arranging spooky ghost excursions tickets and transportation! I sat down to speak with one of our Personal Assistants who gave me some incredible ideas for what to do for Halloween in DC. And some of this is insider information that you won’t find anywhere else!
Boo at the Zoo
October 25th-27th: To commemorate the National Zoo’s “Boo at the Zoo” 15th anniversary, designers have created a special coloring book that will be handed out at the event. Children ages 2-12 and of course their parents are invited for a trick-or-treat animal tour extravaganza complete with entertainment, animal demos, traditional chocolate candies, and healthier options for parents, including wholesome honey sticks, apples, and granola bars. Your kids can also look forward to receiving fun activity books and glow in the dark tattoos. These unique treats and items won’t be found anywhere else in the city and neither will South African Cheetahs!
