Bring your costumed kids to Howloween for treats and safe fun!

The zoo provides a fun and safe setting for this Halloween tradition, where costumed trick-or-treaters learn about healthy habitats for wildlife in a fun scavenger hunt throughout the zoo.

Howloween will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 22, 23 and 28–31 

Treat bags are available at the end of the scavenger hunt for an additional fee of $3 per participant (while supplies last). In keeping with the zoo's mission, Howloween aims to be educational as well as fun, and all the treats come from companies that are committed to using deforestation-free palm oil. Learn more about palm oil and how you can help orangutans and elephants with your consumer choices.

Activities are best suited for children ages 2-12, but all are welcome.

Howloween is free with zoo admission. Advance online ticket reservations are required. Infants are free with a paid adult admission but infant tickets must be included with your online reservation; no additional infant tickets will be available at the gate.

Tickets are available here beginning at midnight, 10 days in advance of each Howloween event date. You will have the option to add Howloween treat bags to your online order.
