Boo at the NC Zoo is an outdoor, Covid-safe alternative for the daytime Halloween celebration. Using CDC and DHHS safety protocols, guests will journey through the outdoor, mostly one-way experience on the Zoo’s pathways.

Families that pay for a Boo wristband will enjoy the following activities:

  • Socially distanced trick-or-treating at stations along the pathways
  • Live music
  • A souvenir photo
  • Pumpkin Palooza (animals with pumpkin enrichment)
  • Treehouse trek admission
  • Carousel rides if it is open
  • Seasonal photo ops 

Please include a cloth face-covering in your child’s costume (a costume face mask does not replace a proper face-covering). Cloth face coverings are required for all guests over the age of 5 at all animal overlooks, inside buildings, and wherever social distancing is not possible.

How we're doing Boo safely:

  • Candy will be put in children’s bags through “treat tubes and shoots” that keeps kids from putting their hands in buckets of candy. This will keep the volunteer and guests 6 feet apart.
  • Volunteers will be wearing all PPE required, such as masks and gloves.
  • All activities will be family-friendly and will not involve screaming or other high-risk activities.

Enjoy trick-or-treating at stations throughout the park, live music, a souvenir photo, Pumpkin Palooza (animals with pumpkin enrichment throughout the park), animal encounters, seasonal photo ops, and the trails decorated for Halloween, and more! Gather up the entire family  - all ages will enjoy this annual fall event at the Zoo.

Boo at the NC Zoo is a rain or shine event, so please be prepared for the weather on the day of your visit.
