Halloween fun at the Zoo for the whole family!
October 19 and 20
If you’d like to do your part to be “green,” we encourage your child to bring a bag, plastic pumpkin or other container for trick-or-treating.
The Toledo Zoo is the most exciting place to be this Halloween! Don’t miss all the fun of this “ghost-travaganza”! Pumpkin Path offers more trick-or-treat stations than Little Boo, but there are no age restrictions—if you can’t make it out for Little Boo, your preschool poltergeists will enjoy Pumpkin Path too!
