Visit Oakland Zoo for our annual Halloween event, Boo at the Zoo! Stroll the Zoo in costume and collect yummy treats.
Ride the spooky boo train and join the first-ever “Boo at the Zoo Dance Party”. Plus, get your face painted, make treats for the animals, and see how the animals at Oakland Zoo celebrate Halloween.
Kids in costumes receive a free ride ticket!
For the third year in a row, the Bay Area Science Festival has helped make this Halloween event a science-themed weekend - featuring a scavenger hunt-style trick or treating adventure, up-close animal encounters, spooky interactive stations, and a Wildlife Theater presentation focused on creepy crawly animals.
Child friendly activities will take place throughout the Zoo, including a treat table where families can create Halloween goodies for the Zoo’s animals.
Boo at the Zoo is a day-time opportunity for families to bring out their noble Ninja Turtles, tiny Tinker Bells, precious Princesses, and spectacular Superheroes to an outdoor adventure filled with spooktackular fun. Enjoy delicious treats from our sponsors - see the full list below.
