Here are some not-too-scary Halloween options for kids

ZooBoo Kids: Lowry Park Zoo made a special point of dialing down the scares this year and turning this into a daytime event for ages 11 and younger, with extended hours on select days, "fright-free" festivities like trick-o-treat stations, a corn maze and kooky-not-spooky character appearances. Running from 1 to 7 p.m., mostly weekends through Nov. 1. It's all included with admission. $27.95, $25.95 seniors, $20.95 ages 3-11, 2 and younger free. 1101 W Sligh Ave., Tampa. (813) 935-8552.

Guppyween: Kids can put on their costumes Oct. 24-25 and come to the Florida Aquarium's event, which includes children's entertainment and all the regular exhibits. Kids in costume get $10 off admission. $23.95, $20.95 seniors, $18.95 ages 3-11, 2 and younger free. Tickets are generally about $2 cheaper if you buy them online. 701 Channelside Drive, Tampa.
