The Milwaukee County Zoo's Halloween Spooktacular!

A hauntingly good time awaits visitors this Halloween as the Zoo magically comes alive with frighteningly fun activities!

"Halloween Spooktacular" takes place Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29.

On Friday, from 6 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Zoo becomes a haunting Halloween haven, complete with all of the not-too-spooky and not-too-creepy activities that make this special event a real treat for our visitors.


Ghostly Giggles:
* Whether you're the Bride of Frankenstein or Spider-Man for the day, we invite you to march in our costume parade Saturday, at 2 p.m. Beginning in front of the Northwestern Mutual Family Farm, follow the costumed crowds to the Peck Welcome Center where you'll have the chance to win special prize giveaways!

* Enjoy Halloween entertainment specially designed for our little witches and warlocks. Activities include: A Halloween haystack maze; special entertainment by Razzmatazz; and a "meet and greet " with Jack Sparrow at our Pirate's Cove.

* New this year! Celebrate "The Year of the Bat" through special talks by our bat zookeepers. You'll learn the importance of these winged mammals, and what you can do to help save their habitats.

* Enjoy our glowing, hand-carved pumpkins in the Pumpkin Patch! Then, venture to see illuminated pumpkins, as they catch your eye against a backdrop of a musical, animated light show! The Pumpkin Patch is located in our outdoor Feline Mall, and the light show glitters along the Forest Trail at Wolf Woods Crossing.

* All aboard - if you dare! Hop on the legendary Zoo Train turned Raven's Rail as it takes guests on a spooky spin through the Zoo!

* Sweets and Treats! Visitors can gather goodies by visiting a variety of treat stops located among our animal exhibits! Venture to our new African lion cubs and lowland gorillas, as our volunteers fill your bags with goodies galore!

* Several of our animals also will take part in the Halloween fun, and receive special pumpkins prepared just for them - filled with their favorite treats! These pumpkins serve as enrichment, and allow the animals to display behaviors similar to those shown in the wild.

Don't Miss!
As you make your way through the Zoo, be sure to follow the Halloween Adventures of Harry and Fred! Your favorite rhyming storybook characters, Harry and Fred, return this year for another crazy adventure!
