The Detroit Zoo’s annual “merry-not-scary” event has been re-imagined to bring even more Halloween excitement to your family! Zoo Boo, presented by DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan, will be held on the evenings of October 6-8, October 13-15 and October 20-22, between 5 and 8 p.m.
Exhilarating live entertainment awaits your costume-clad little ones, including dazzling and daring acrobatics, magic acts, jugglers and extreme pumpkin carving demonstrations, as well as “altogether ooky” movies. Be sure to stop by the Haunted Reptile House and visit the ghosts and goblins that have made the Holden Reptile Conservation Center their home for the season. Make friends with other haunted creatures and enjoy the fabulous pumpkin displays along the “unlucky” 13-station trick-or-treat trail. Help a zoo scientist with research at the Spooky Science Laboratory tent or color your favorite Zoo animals on our 16-foot mural!
