Reasons you’ll have a howling good time at Boo! at the Zoo

Looking for a way to celebrate Halloween this weekend? How about celebrating with your favorite animals? Head on down to Brookfield Zoo’s last weekend of Boo! at the Zoo, and make your own howling Halloween memory! Need convincing? Here are reasons why the fun-filled event is the perfect way to celebrate:

If you go

Brookfield Zoo

Oct. 24-25

11 a.m. – 4 p.m.


It’s a not-so-scary way for the youngins to celebrate. No zombies chasing after you, just good ol’ fashioned fun with your favorite zoo animals.

Seeing a one thousand pound pumpkin? Pretty cool. Watching a professional pumpkin carver transforming that pumpkin into a work of art? Pretty awesome.

Kids (and adults) have a chance to show off their costumes in the parade. Plus, it’s a great way to get more use out of that costume this season.

A-maze-ing! Get lost in the 7,000-square-foot corn maze.

How cool is it to watch animals eat? Animals like sloths, grizzlies and polar bears (Oct. 24) and lions (Oct. 25) get their very own treats in the form of pumpkins to celebrate the season.

See the babies! Okay, not exactly Halloween-related but how can you resist taking a peek at the zoo’s newest baby gorilla?

Get your creative juices flowing and participate in the costume contest where you can say “Hi” to the lovely ladies of Chicago Parent who will be judging on Sunday.
