I personally think it's one of the cutest Halloween events in town, and it's officially on this year at Mesker Park Zoo.  If you have kids, it's a really fun time, I definitely recommend it! I had the opportunity to hand out candy at a booth in 2019 and had a blast seeing all of the kids in their costumes (seriously there are some creative people in the Tri-state), the zoo was decked out for Halloween, and they had a magic show. It was a really fun time!

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
