boo at the zoo and baby boo at buttonwood photoNow in its 20th year – Boo at the Zoo will satisfy all your fall, Halloween and cool weather cravings. With campus wide daytime trick-or-treating, there are seven chances to enjoy Boo at the Zoo this year.

Want to show off your little ghosts and goblins? Baby Boo is for you! Baby Boo is geared towards children 5 and under, but any age is welcome!

Boo at the Zoo runs from 10:00am to 6:00pm on October 16, 17, 23, 24, 30 and 31.
Baby Boo runs from 9:00am to 2:00pm on October 29.

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.

Don’t forget to stop into the Cafe to enjoy festive, fall favorites – who can resist kettle corn and apple cider!

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.
