Trick-or-treat in the wildest neighborhood in town during ZOO Boo Bash.

ZOO Boo Bash, the zoo’s annual Halloween event complete with daily costume contests and other fun activities. Family friendly costumes are welcome. Treat stations, crafts and other fun activities available from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

It’s safe, fun, and not-too-scary event for young and old alike. Kids are invited to bring goodie bags and wear costumes for trick or treat stations. If you forget your costume, not a problem, our face painter will help you fit right in*. Use your creativity and play in the sandbox with Creations from the Sand*. Also, learn about the myths and realities of some misunderstood animals.

Musical Story-time twice daily with Mr. Richard.
