Grab your cowboy hats, boots, and your horse (if you have one), spouse, family, friends, quarters for the claw machine and come enjoy lots of fun with us!

The 29th Edition of Como Friends' ZooBoo is in the history books, and it was a good one. Over four nights just over 16,000 guests passed through the gates to help Como Zoo grow while helping themselves to some goodies.
This was the Nokomis' 23rd year helping out. The first station, Halloween, is our first stop each year and a great way to spend an evening with a few thousand new, close personal friends. Thanks to everyone who could make it. Special thanks to Art Johnson, our one and only perfect four-night volunteer character.
Next year will be the 30th ZooBoo and if all goes as expected, will be a big party to celebrate. Funds from that event will help to kick off work on the new Pinniped Plaza, replacing the Seal Island and Sparky Stage area with new performance and year-round display spaces.
Come join us next October for ZooBoo 30, and thanks again for all you did to help out in 2016.
The Backyard Movie Night is coming next Month! This year it's indoors in November.
With just over a month remaining, it's time to reserve your place at the event and pre-pay for the food. Dawn and Mary will be planning, shopping and cooking and they need counts to buy food and headcount to know how much. To make sure there's lead time, we've set a deadline of October 22nd.
Just in time for your holiday shopping, or movie night viewing. Amazon.com and others list the release date as November 1st.
Now the hard part - which version? StarTrek.com reveals the details, although their release date is likely incorrect. The site reports that each retailer has its own unique bent, or 'warp' on the product. Aside from the DVD/Blu-Ray/3D choices, you can choose which model or models make you happy.

Our good and dear friend Lucia Johnson left us last night, October 13th after a long battle with cancer. She passed peacefully in her sleep.
Lucia fought cancer, one battle after another for more than a decade. In all that time she never gave up, never surrendered. She is one of the strongest people you'll ever meet. Even though her battle is over and her time to rest is here, she's still a fine example to all of us. She's a hero.
