boo at the zoo

Halloween is quickly upon us, and I am truly looking forward to fun activities to get my little guy excited. Even though he won’t truly look forward to the big day, I can show him some little things along the way to explain about the fun holiday. Things like pumpkins, and costumes. Who doesn’t like those? And The Bronx Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo gives your family some great Halloween themed entertainment right along with all the great things the zoo normally has to offer!

Boo At The Zoo

The festivities run at the Bronx Zoo for FIVE consecutive weekends beginning with this weekend on September 29th.

Safe, family-friendly activities include

o The Haunted Habitat Mansion

o Creepy Hollows Hayride

o Costume Parade

o Music, Magic, and MORE

o Master Carver Pumpkin carving demonstrations

Annual favorites including a haunted walk-through adventure – The Haunting at Habitat Mansion – and the spooky Hayride through Creepy Hollows headline the festivities and have been enhanced for this year’s Boo at the Zoo. Visitors will enjoy magic shows, musical performances, and costume parades in addition to traditional guest favorites including the hay maze, haunted extinct graveyard and special seasonal craft workshops.
