Grab your favorite costume and join us for BOO AT THE ZOO. Climb aboard the Spooky Express for a train ride through the Witches Den, stroll down the Trick or Treat Trail, and creep through the Shipwreck Cove Maze.

Dress the kids in their favorite costume and come explore all that BPZOO has to offer! We’ll provide families with a socially-distanced walk through experience with some twists and turns along the way.

Our slightly spooky theme will include mazes, a scavenger hunt, plenty of trick-or-treat stations, endless photo opportunities including a photo costume contest, Halloween themed animal enrichment, and up-close meet and greets with the Zoo’s Animal Ambassadors. Families are encouraged to bring their own “trick or treat” bags.

All proceeds from Boo at the Zoo support the Zoo’s education and family programs.

NEW this year – Pumpkin Decorating Contest!

Each pumpkin must be submitted with a Pumpkin Decorating Entry Form at the Zoo on October 12th or 13th. Click the link for full details.
