Boo at the Zoo is a Washington, DC favorite Halloween tradition. Children visit the National Zoo at dark and enjoy trick-or-treating, animal encounters, keeper talks, festive decorations, and haunted trails. Proceeds from Boo at the Zoo benefit the Zoo’s conservation science and animal care programs. The Bird House, Small Mammal House, Reptile Discovery Center, Great Apes House, Think Tank and Kids’ Farm will be open and filled with Halloween-themed enrichment for the animals.
2013 Dates: October 25-27, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Tickets are required and usually sell out in advance. You may purchase them at the Zoo's Visitor Center or online.
