Neighborhood Spotlight: Boo at the Zoo

  |     |   Lifestyle

October brings thoughts of pumpkins, scarecrows, and Halloween at the Milwaukee Zoo. The zoo offers fun events for the whole family to enjoy during special holidays such as Halloween. 

Boo at the Zoo happens on Friday, October 18th & Saturday, October 19th from 6 to 9 p.m. The zoo will close at its normal business hours of 4:30pm and then re-open for the event.

Prairie Farms Dairy is graciously hosting this wonderful event with family friendly fun geared towards kids of all ages but will not be too spooky so the younger kids can enjoy it too. Tickets are needed to get into the event and can be purchased on their website, zoo pass members will get $2 off each Boo at the Zoo ticket they purchase. The event is held rain or shine and tickets are non-refundable.

This is a family-friendly event so please feel free to dress up in your Halloween costumes but no face masks will be allowed. The zoo will be decorated with over 100 pumpkins along the pumpkin path walk, stroll down this path to see the articulately animal carved pumpkins, the details on these pumpkins will be sure to impress. 

The Haystack maze will be a great adventure too as it is assembled of nothing other than haystacks. The maze leads to the Otto Borchert Family Exhibit building where you can visit with some fun Halloween characters. 

There will be face painting available so you can transform into your favorite zoo animal. Stop and color peanuts crown, apply a spooky temporary tattoo, or check out the create of the night talk where the zookeeper's will discuss the nocturnal animals they care for.

Delicious caramel apples will be served at the Peck Welcome Center and concessions stands will be open also.
