Wristbands for 'Trick or Treaters' for Boo at the Zoo may be purchased, for $5, only at the Zoo's Admission gates on the day of the event.
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:
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:
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.
