Join us the first three weekends of October for some spooky, not scary, activities and entertainment.
Hoots and Howls is packed with fun for all ages! From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. you can cruise around on a pedal tractor, navigate a hay bale maze, sing along with our interactive DJ and take a ride on the Scare-o-cel. Enjoy a hayride around the Zoo and create a wild craft in the lobby. Our animals are joining in the fun by smashing pumpkins at scheduled times throughout the day.
