The Houston Zoo invites all little ghouls and goblins to celebrate fall festivities during its month-long Zoo Boo presented LyondellBasell. From Oct. 2 – Nov. 1 guests can wear their best costumes for Houston’s favorite merry-not-scary Halloween event.  


This year’s Zoo Boo features a few new experiences updated for the current times. Guests will visit the Spooky Train Village sponsored by Frost Bank, hear a short story from the Friendly Dragon, and take a spin on the spooktacular Scary-Go-Round.  


A dozen Instagram-able photo opportunities are located throughout the Zoo for families to take the perfect fall portrait. Guests can be entered into a weekly digital costume contest when they tag their Zoo Boo photos using the hashtag #HoustonZoo.  


The animals will also be joining in the fun! Every weekend in October the animals will receive special fall-themed enrichment including carved pumpkins and ice pops filled with their favorite treats.  


All Zoo Boo activities are included in general admission and are free for Zoo members. Tickets and reservations must be made online prior to attending the event.

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, Zoo Boo will not include a pumpkin patch or candy giveaways this year.
