boo at the zoo and baby boo at buttonwood photoNow in it's 19th year, Boo at the Zoo returns, with extra precautions, during the daytime to satisfy all your fall, Halloween and cool weather cravings.

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 17, 18, 24, 25 and 31.
Baby Boo runs from 9:00am to 2:00pm on October 23 and 30.

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.
