Wild Zoo Halloween 2016

Already missing the Zoo? Well, here’s a treat for you!

The 38th annual “merry-not-scary” Wild Zoo Halloween event is almost here! Join us at the Zoo from noon to 5 p.m. on October 14-16, 20-23, or 27-31 (grounds close at 6 p.m.).

This October, wander down the treat trails to visit your favorite animals and pick up candy along the way. Don’t forget your Halloween costumes! Broomhilda the Witch loves taking photos with all of the princesses, dragons, and other Halloween creatures.

Plenty of activities will take place daily. Watch our California sea lions perform a “spook-tacular” show on the Sea Lion Beach or meet Sydney the Kangaroo Mascot in the Australian Plaza. Even pick a pumpkin from our Pumpkin Patch and take it home.

Different Halloween activities are happening each day too. On Friday October 21, all of the animals will be celebrating Halloween with pumpkin enrichment treats at the Pumpkin Stomp & Chomp event. For a full list of which animals are receiving treats and other special holiday events, visit our Wild Zoo Halloween event page.

We can’t wait to see you back at the Zoo this fall!
