Join us October 27th, 28th and 29th for a Bigger, Better, Boo at the Zoo, presented by Carondelet Medical Group!

Visit the Zoo for some spooktacular fun! At this new, expanded event you will meet your favorite pirates, superheroes,  princesses and wizards inspired by great books and movies. While you stroll through the Zoo, children will play old fashioned games and activities and listen to music in Rancho Sahuarita’s Fall Festival area, and explore a western skele-town at a pace that works for your family. New this year is a Scary Loop at the Conservation Learning Center (suggested for children 12 and older). Event sponsors will have treats sure to please the whole family. “Scare”ousel will be open for rides for an additional fee.
