You won’t want to miss out on this spooky good time as the Sacramento Zoo transforms into the kid-friendly place to be for Halloween.
Kids can safely trick-or-treat around the lake at candy stations with lots of goodies as well as enjoy spooky entertainment, a haunted house, DJ dance party, carnival games, magic shows, plenty of sweet treats and pumpkin bowling. Hot chocolate and apple cider will be available for purchase. Ride the Zoo’s Creepy Carousel or the Spooky Train for $2 per person.
Sacramento Zoo works to offer candy that is palm-oil free or is manufactured by companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil during Boo at the Zoo. The sustainable production of palm oil is crucial to the survival of orangutans; their rain forest habitat is often destroyed to create poorly managed and unsustainable palm oil plantations.
The Zoo is traffic-free and a natural place to have a safe Halloween filled with family-friendly frights and sights. Boo at the Zoo benefits the Sacramento Zoological Society. This event will be held rain or shine and is appropriate for children 10 and under. General admission is $10.00 per person; Sacramento Zoo Member admission is $8.00. Children one and under are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the Zoo, call 916-808-5888 for information, or tickets are available online at www.saczoo.org.
