Boo at the Zoo - Daytime - 6 Day Event

Boo at the Zoo returns for it's 19th year! It's a Palm Beach County not-so-scary Halloween tradition. Enjoy trick-or-treating all around the Zoo, little kids costume contests (ages 12 and younger), strolling famous costume characters, DJ, and more.

Over 150,000 pieces of candy sponsored by our friends at...

There's an important conservation message at Boo at the Zoo, too. The candy we give away comes from manufacturers who belong to the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) or follow comparable sustainability practices. The harvesting of palm oil in Southeast Asia is one of the biggest threats to animals like our Malayan tigers.

RSPO sustainable candy list for Halloween

Most Boo at the Zoo activities are included in admission.

  • Haystack Hunt is $1 per child and the Pumpkin Patch (includes decorations and a take home pumpkin) is $4 per child.
