Welcome to Boo at the Zoo, a trick or treating experience that is truly held where the wild things are! Every evening from October 22 to October 27 the pathways of the Fort Worth Zoo turn into treasure trails and pumpkin patches, with treats available at every turn. Children in costumes can play carnival games for candy, and professional pumpkin carver Russ Leno displays his masterpieces of pumpkin carving magic. Live entertainment includes the Wild Wonders animal show and the rollicking Monster Bash variety show, as well as appearances by the Cowtown Clowns. Wild animal presenters will also give special discussions about live animals until dusk. Festivities during Boo at Zoo kick off each evening at 5:30 and last until 8 p.m.
Tickets cost $12 for general admission; toddlers under the age of two can get in for four dollars. Parking costs five dollars. Purchase tickets online or over the phone at (817) 759-7373 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily. Boo at the Zoo has been a Fort Worth tradition for eighteen years, and it's an evening activity that's especially compatible with the busy schedules of working parents.
