California Travel Tips

Zoo Boo to You at California Zoos

Published on: October 11, 2018


Lions and tigers and bears and giraffes get a laugh when Halloween comes to a zoo near you. Some get pumpkin treats, others bite on Frankenstein chew toys and many get to see new, strange (human) creatures in colorful costumes passing by. It’s all part of the merriment and California’s 20 or so Boos at Zoos, Halloween Zoo Trick or Treats and other fun events celebrated at the state’s zoos.

In addition to zoo parties there are also spooky Halloween sleepovers and safaris. Often public attendance helps fund zoo projects and expenses — but if you’re feeling generous, you can always put some extra cash in the coffers by purchasing memberships or making donations for all the fun afforded you and your family at these institutions.
