Win a Family-4 Pack to ZooBoo at the Indianapolis Zoo

Oct. 2-4, 9-11, 16-18, 23-25 • 2-7pm

​Each year, ZooBoo at the Indianapolis Zoo provides all the fun festivities the season has to offer in a family-friendly event. Fall is already one of the best times to visit the Zoo with the animals out and active in mild temperatures. Add a Halloween twist full of decorations, photo opportunities and all your favorite ZooBoo activities for a day your family will love!

The Zoo opens at 9am, so come out early to enjoy a great fall day! The animals offer the perfect backdrop to this event. Enjoy Halloween-themed Dolphin Adventure Presentations and animal chats throughout the celebration. Even the elephant herd will get into the Halloween spirit with the pumpkin-gut splattering fun of the Elephant Pumpkin Smash.

The little ones are encouraged to dress up in their favorite wild costumes! To not scare our younger guests, full masks are only permitted for children ages 12 and under. Those who need help bringing out their inner animal can visit one of the talented artists at a face-painting station. Children are encouraged to bring a re-usable goodie bag for a little trick-or-treat, too!
