October 14 2015

BATON ROUGE, LA. —  BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo will host its 19th annual in-house Boo at the Zoo on October 17, 18, 24 and 25. This merry, not scary trick-or-treat extravaganza has become Baton Rouge’s largest trick-or-treat event, and is expected to draw more than 30,000 visitors from across the metro region.

“What could be more fun than trick-or-treating with the animals?” said Phil Frost, Zoo Director. “Boo at the Zoo is a wonderful way for families across the region to enjoy safe, off-the-street trick-or-treating while experiencing all the wonders that wildlife and nature have to offer.”

Aside from the more than twenty trick-or-treat stations, activities will include a Hay Maze, the Enchanted Swamp, Ed-Zoo-Cation Station and Spooky Train Ride. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from the Zoo’s Flamingo Café as well as from All Star Catering and Sno-Mobile Louisiana.  All children in attendance will receive a free trick-or-treat bag.  

Admission gates will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Zoo grounds close at 5 p.m.  Regular Zoo admission applies. For more information on Boo at the Zoo 2015, please visit or call (225) 775-3877.
