Boo at the Zoo

Calling all ghosts, goblins, and witches - join us for Boo at the Zoo! Due to its popularity, we are extending Boo at the Zoo to four weekends in October. Grab a program as you enter the Zoo and follow the clues on our self-guided scavenger hunt to find all the trick-or-treating animals hidden throughout the Zoo. Remember to dress in costume when you visit and tag Oakland Zoo on social media to enter our Halloween costume contest!
