Experience a fall festival like no other! Our Festival Field features carnival games, bounce houses, dance parties, carousel, corn pit and more. Don’t miss the Howl-O-Ween Hayride, which takes riders on a trip through the Zoo’s backroads to uncover magical scenes, festive friends and a stop through our famous Bubble Tunnel.

Take a walk around Zoo trail and uncover festive treats around every corner. Our candy selection is palm oil-free and includes favorites like M&M’s, Smarties, Skittles and more. Please note, trick-or-treating is intended for children only.
