Halloween fun at the Zoo for the whole family!
Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25
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!

Teal Pumpkin Project
For Little Boo and Pumpkin Path, the Zoo be taking part in the Teal Pumpkin Project™ and offer non-candy treats at select stations this year. This movement was launched as a national campaign by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) in 2014 and raises awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. At select candy stations, we will offer non-food treats as an option so all can enjoy the event safely and be able to receive a treat at EVERY station. These stations will be signified with a teal-painted pumpkin and signage. For more information on the Teal Pumpkin Project™, visit their website: http://www.foodallergy.org/teal-pumpkin-project
