Teal Pumpkin Project

For Little Boo and Pumpkin Path, the Zoo will be taking part in the Teal Pumpkin Project™ and offering non-candy treats at ALL 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. 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. All stations will be signified with signage.
