Houston’s largest family-friendly Halloween
event is back and better than ever!


 We had a great time last year.  The kids loved going through the zoo and getting candy at various stations, playing some little carnival-type games, and picking out a small pumpkin and decorating it.  Having another place to dress up and wear costumes was also a big plus.  Since Halloween only comes once a year, it's nice to get to dress up a few times. 


One important note:   The website says no toy weapons allowed.  Last year our oldest daughter dressed as a basketball player and we weren't allowed to take the basketball in the zoo.  We had to leave it in the office out front.  They didn't seem to want lose items like that to be brought in as part of the costume, so plan accordingly and call them if you want more specific clarification.


The pumpkin area is a great place to take pictures.  This was our first visit last year.

They got to decorate the pumpkins with paint markers.
We went twice last year!  This was the second set of costumes.

By having a family membership to the zoo, we were able to go twice during Zoo Boo and it was FREE.  Consider supporting your local zoo and buying a membership today.
