This Halloween season, BOO AT THE L.A. ZOO invites guests to feed their imaginations with skin crawling fun and spooktacular learning throughout the entire month of October, beginning Monday, October 1, and continuing through Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Boo at the L.A. Zoo activities are free with paid Zoo admission. Check www.lazoo.org/BOO for details and schedule.
Weekend activities include up close encounters and demonstrations with the zoos most fearsome, frightening, and misunderstood residents along with fun animal feedings. Plant eaters will relish “Creature Treats” such as pumpkins, while carnivores will devour their favorite fare – carcasses and bones – during “Fearsome Feedings.” (Parental discretion advised for the latter.) Additional merry-not-scary activities include “Swazzle’s Monster Menagerie” interactive puppet show; Mad Science Show featuring jaw-dropping demonstrations; pumpkin carving demonstrations; a spooky stroll where one can enjoy Halloween activities, mini pumpkin patch, and capture frightfully good snaps at the many Boo-tiful photo ops along the way. On Saturdays, October 20 and 27, and Sundays, October 21 and 28, the Halloween bash offers creepy crafts, roaming characters, and traditional trick-or-treat stations throughout the grounds.
