BREC’S Baton Rouge Zoo Hosts 23rd Annual Boo at the Zoo 2019

September 12 2019

On October 19, 20, 26 and 27, BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo will host its 23rd Annual Boo at the Zoo! Presented by Hancock Whitney Bank, this merry, not scary trick-or-treat extravaganza began in 1996 with just under 3,900 visitors and has grown to become Baton Rouge’s largest trick-or-treat event, and is expected to draw up to 20,000 visitors from across the metro region in 2018.

“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 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 Halloween Hay Maze, Ed-Zoo-Cation Station, and Enchanted Swamp Tour. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from the Zoo’s Flamingo Café, All Star Catering, and Sno-Mobile of LA.  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 & free for Friends of the Zoo members. For more information on Boo at the Zoo, please visit or call (225) 775-3877
