Boo at the Zoo
Sacramento Zoo: A Safe and Fun Halloween for Kids

The Sacramento Zoo presents Boo at the Zoo for two nights on Saturday, October 30th and Sunday, October 31st from 4:30 to 8:00 pm.  Come dressed up and join the ghoulish fun. Don’t miss out on a spooky good time as the Sacramento Zoo transforms into a kid-friendly place to be for Halloween. Trick-or-treat bags will be available for each child.

Kids can safely trick-or-treat around Lake Victoria at 17 candy stations; as well as enjoy spooky entertainment, creepy creature shows, magic shows, fun crafts, haunted house and tons of ghoulish goodies. There will be pumpkin bowling, a wheel-of-treats and more games ‘n’ goodies. Hot chocolate and apple cider will be available for purchase as well. Ride the Zoo’s Creepy Carousel or the Spooky Train for $2 per person.
This year, the Sacramento Zoo is working with the Grocery Outlet in Elk Grove to provide candy that is 100% palm oil free or contains sustainable palm oil. Palm oil production in Southeast Asia is the main culprit for Orangutans’ habitat destruction, which has resulted in their rapid decline in the wild.

The Zoo is traffic-free and a natural place to have a safe and happy Halloween. Boo at the Zoo benefits the Sacramento Zoological Society. This event is recommended for children 10 and under. General admission is $9.00 per person; Sacramento Zoo Members admission is $5.00.  Children two and under are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the Zoo, call 916-808-5888 for information, or tickets are available online
