Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo
The Detroit Zoo’s Annual “Merry-Not-Scary” Annual Event Has Been Re-Imagined Just for You!
Each year, the Detroit Zoo offers exhilarating live entertainment that includes acrobatics, magic acts, jugglers, story tellers, live music and pumpkin carving demonstrations for all to enjoy. Zoo Boo will be held during the evenings of October 5-7, October 12-14 and October 19-21. Friday and Saturday hours are from 5 to 8 p.m.; Sunday hours are from 3 to 7 p.m. Advance ticket purchase is encouraged because this event is quite popular and some nights actually sell out. Tickets at the door will only be sold between 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and 5:45 and 6:45 p.m. on Sundays.
Bring the kids and make friends with haunted creatures and enjoy the fabulous Halloween displays along the 13-station trick-or-treat trail. Don’t forget to stop by the Haunted Reptile House and visit the ghosts and goblins at the Holden Reptile Conservation Center.
