Put on your favorite family-friendly costume and set out on a trick-or-treat safari! Zoo Boo, Cenla’s biggest family-friendly Halloween party, is back at Alexandria Zoo for four nights over two spooktacular weekends. Zoo Boo, Alexandria Zoo’s merry-not-scary Halloween event, is October 18, 19, 25 and 26 from 5:30 – 8 pm.
The wickedly fun celebration begins along the Shutterbug Trail when you enter the Zoo. You’ll meet many of your favorite movie and storybook characters at boo-tiful themed photo ops.
At the Festival Plaza, discover a fresh spin on interactive kids’ activities that will have you howling with excitement. Test your skills on the agility course, snap a photo with pet and barn yard characters, and enjoy games and activities. All Festival Plaza area activities can be enjoyed in any order and at your own pace.
When you’re ready for the sweets and treats, pick up a treat bag and head down Trick-or-Treat Lane, which leads through the rest of the Zoo to the exit. Children 12 years and younger can gather up goodies as you travel from station to station. Guests of all ages will receive a soft drink courtesy of Coca-Cola of Alexandria.
ADMISSION: $7 per person, ages 1 and older (cash only). Since Zoo Boo is the Zoo’s largest fundraising event, FOTAZ memberships and other zoo passes are not accepted. Tickets cannot be purchased in advance.
COSTUMES: Family-friendly costumes are encouraged, but not required. Ages 14 and older may not wear masks or heavy make-up that covers the face or conceals their identity.
PARKING: Parking is available in the Zoo’s main parking lot on Masonic Drive. There is additional parking at the Youth Baseball Complex and down Babe Ruth Drive. Carpooling is encouraged.
QUEUE LINE: The queue line will be located in Bringhurst Baseball Field with live music to entertain you while you wait.
TRICK-OR-TREATING: Trick-or-treating is reserved for kids ages 12 and younger. There are lots of decorations, photo ops, music, and activities for all ages to enjoy.
ANIMALS: While you may spot a few night owls during Zoo Boo, most of our residents will be off-exhibit to catch some zzz’s.
