Come dressed in your Halloween best and have a wild time during the greatest Halloween tradition in the Bronx, Boo at the Zoo!
This year, the Bronx Zoo unveils its first-ever after dark haunted experience, Dinosaurs in Darkness: The Hatching. You’ll walk through the Dinosaur Safari area on an adventure where you’ll follow the story of a rare egg found intact after 66 million years – and it’s ready to hatch! Appropriate for kids 13 and older, visitors can attend after hours on Friday and Saturday nights from Oct. 7 – 29; this will be ticketed separately from Bronx Zoo admission.
During the day, the beloved Boo at the Zoo festival returns. Kids and adults love the candy trail, costume parade, trick-or-treating, animal-themed stilt walkers, Halloween animal puppets, crafts, live bird meet-and-greet, magic and mind reading, pumpkin carving demos, the Wildlife Theater, the Boo Playground, Extinct Animal Graveyard, pumpkin trail and Trick-or-Truth Trail.
Come down for the fun Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 1 – 30. Plus, there are special hours on Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 10.
Bronx Zoo is located at 2300 Southern Blvd., Bronx, NY
