HOUSTON– Houston’s largest family-friendly Halloween event is back and better than ever! Guests can bring their little ghouls and goblins to the Houston Zoo for Zoo Boo.  Enjoy safe Halloween trick-or-treating, music, and fun activities with a wild twist on Fridays, October 14, 21, and 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, October 15-16, 22-23, 29-30 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Children can pick a child-sized pumpkin to decorate from the Fiesta Mart Pumpkin Patch; wander through a not-so-creepy Halloween maze; show off their best Zoo Boo costume and learn how to dance like a zombie at the Monster Mashquerade; channel their inner artist and contribute to our Monster Mural; visit our Tatzoo Parlor. Children of all ages can learn interesting animal facts as they try to guess what’s in the Zoo Boo Mystery Boxes; all this plus Halloween-themed Meet the Keeper Talks presented by Phillips 66 and animal-themed Candy Corner candy stations.  Activities vary.  See the spooktacular Zoo Boo activities online at www.houstonzoo.org/zooboo/ and in the Zoo Boo program at the zoo.

Guests are also invited to learn all about how the Houston Zoo helps animals like Houston toads and howler at the Howlerween station. Here, children can go on a discovery of which animals here in Houston and around the world need help, and what they can do to save animals in the wild.

All Zoo Boo activities are included with paid zoo admission.  Zoo Boo is free for zoo members.

Zoo Boo is sponsored by Fiesta Mart and United – the official airline of the Houston Zoo.
