Fall Favorite BOO at the ZOO To Feature Halloween-Themed Activities at the Bronx Zoo

Boo at the Zoo is a fall tradition at the Bronx Zoo and the seasonal celebration it is returning for 2021. The Halloween-themed event is a family favorite for New Yorkers that marks the beginning of fall with activities for all ages.

Boo at the Zoo begins Saturday October 2 and will run on Saturdays and Sundays through October 31 (including Monday, October 11). Outdoor activities will include traditional favorites such as the popular professional pumpkin carving demonstrations and displays; magic and mind reading shows; trick or treating on the Candy Trail; and the spooky extinct animal graveyard. Animal-themed costumed stilt walkers and Halloween animal puppets will headline the costume parade and the Wildlife Theater will perform each day on Astor Court.

Unvaccinated guests over the age of 2 are also required to wear a mask at all outdoor areas where social distancing cannot be maintained. Face coverings remain optional for vaccinated guests in outdoor areas. Visit the Know Before You Go page for more information on the zoo’s COVID protocols.
