Halloween ZooBoo presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers

1200 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46222



October 28 to November 1 at 2:00 PM

Is regular October too humdrum, but haunted houses too creepy-crawly? Come to the Zoo for super-duper Halloween activities, amazing animals and pumpkins galore! ZooBoo is always a fun family experience for itty-bitty ghouls and goblins, as well as the bigger kids. October weather means active animals, colorful foliage and a new season to explore. Combine that with engaging activities, spooktacular costumes and trick-or-treating — plus new, extended hours and the chance to boogie-woogie to a live DJ — and you’ve got an unforgettable family tradition. Woo-hoo!

ZooBoo is free for Zoo members and included with regular admission. Discount tickets are available at area Donatos and Indiana Members Credit Union locations.

Pumpkin Town
The Bicentennial Pavilion is home to a whimsical village with adorable cats and fancy rats, a friendly witch, and a pumpkin school where fun is in session! Guests can also visit not-so-scary creatures in Jack’s Barn presented by State Farm or the cats being fostered in Bewitching Bites by our friendly witch. Through the Zoo’s partnership with Indianapolis Animal Care Services, guests can learn about adopting these adorable animals after Halloween. And, don’t forget to explore the friendly witch’s carnivorous plant, hat, and magic wand collections! Little witches and goblins can engage in boo-worthy experiments at the Pumpkin School. Plus, the dance party is always going with Halloween hits from Patch Radio!
