Get in the Halloween spirit with Boo at the Zoo at Buttonwood Park. Kids can come in costume and trick-or-treat during the day. This year there are seven opportunities to enjoy this family-friendly outdoor event throughout October. Participants will take a socially-distanced stroll with some twists and turns along the way. The slightly spooky theme will include mazes, a scavenger hunt, plenty of trick-or-treat stations and free carousel rides; as well as endless photo opportunities including a photo costume contest a Halloween-themed animal enrichment, and up-close meet and greets with the Zoo’s Animal Ambassadors. Upon entry into the Zoo, masks are required to use the restrooms, indoor cafe and the Rainforest building. Please bring your bags to store the goodies.
