Trick or treat with the animals!

Saturdays and Sundays, Starting October 14

Join us for a "kooky-not-spooky" daytime Halloween celebration. The zoo transforms into a hauntingly fun destination for the whole family with trick-or-treat stations, creepy crawly animal encounters, keeper chats, games, activities, photo ops and costume parade! So, wear your costumes and bring your treat bags for this fall-favorite event! 

Themed Weekends:

October 14-15: Superheros

October 21-22: Witches and Wizards

October 28-29: Your Favorite Movie or TV Characters

Enjoy a “sleepy hollow” experience at the zoo with a Spooky Stroll through the Wildlife Trail.

Mysterious fog and eerie music spill over our decorated trail, giving a unique Halloween feel to visitors without being too scary for the little ones. A trick-or-treating station in the Animal Health Center will have a photo op where Zoo Boo participants can pose for photos.
