Trick or treat with the animals!
SAVE THE DATES - Saturdays and Sundays, October 2023
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!
New for 2022, we brought a “sleepy hollow” feel to 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 new trick-or-treating station in the Animal Health Center had a green screen for photo ops, where Zoo Boo participants posed for photos with the background of their choice.
*Admission to the zoo is not included in ticket price. You will be required to purchase admission to the zoo unless you are a zoo member.
Note: Zoo Boo tickets are required for trick-or-treaters only. Parents that do not wish to trick-or-treat are not required to purchase a Zoo Boo ticket.
