Bring the kids in their costumes to prowl around the Zoo for some safe and socially distanced Halloween fun!

See the animals by day and laugh as you walk through merry and not too scary scenes and photo sets like Skeletown and Pumpkin Pallooza — Or come during extended hours for an evening stroll through colorful lighted paths and displays. This event is designed for children up to age 12, but all are welcome!

This year’s Halloween event has been reimagined with health and safety in mind. The number of guests in the Zoo is limited and tickets must be purchased in advance. All guests over age five must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose.

Please note that this event will not feature costumed characters, animal presentations, rides, or play equipment. Water fountains are also closed, so be sure to bring water.
