Wear your best costumes and visit the Zoo on October 20, 21, 27 and 28. Admissions are open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Zoo grounds close at 5 p.m. Regular Zoo admission applies, $8.25 for adults/teens, $7.25 for seniors, $5.25 for children ages two to 12 and admission is free for children ages one and under.
"What can make trick-or-treating more fun? Animals!" said Zoo Director Phil Frost. "Boo at the Zoo is a great way to experience the Zoo in a different way, and our Zoo is very proud to offer a safe, off-the-street alternative for trick-or-treating."
Boo at the Zoo is the premiere trick-or-treating event in Baton Rouge. Take a group photo at the Safari Snapshot photo kiosk and catch a ride on the spooky train ride. Celebrate the International Year of the Bat while wandering through the batty, merry-not-scary hay maze. Penny the Zoo's elephant mascot will also be on grounds to welcome children and pose for pictures. Don't miss the popular Boo Den at its new location, the KidsZoo boardwalk. Get up-close to our scaly, furry and feathered friends at the EdZOOcation Station.
"Boo at the Zoo is one of our community's favorite events," said Marketing Director Mary Woods. "All of our attractions are merry, not scary, so parents can feel comfortable bringing their small children. We invite the entire community to come trick-or-treat with the Zoo animals!"
