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 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 at
