Explore the St. Louis Zoo after dark during special Boo at the Zoo Nights. Bring your little ghouls and goblins to this non-scary celebration designed just for kids, and costumes are encouraged! Enjoy the Zoo's decorated grounds, the Haunted Hallow, the new Witchy Walk welcoming little monsters, giant webs, animal encounters, pumpkin painting, a haunted house with a singing witch, the Fragile Forest Fairyland, the mystery straw maze and lots more.

Kids can also make Halloween-themed, creepy crafts in the Lakeside Cafe, enjoy interactive fireside stories and ride the Conservation Carousel (the non-spooky Scare-ou-sel!). Visit the 4D Theater for a showing of "Happy Family 4D," a tale of a family adventure that unassumingly goes to a theme park but ends up getting transformed into mystical monsters!

Nightly, kid-favorite live entertainment includes:

  • Babaloo Music and Entertainment: October 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30
  • Juggline Jeff: October 18, 19, 26
  • Chef Bananas: October 20, 22
  • Enchanted Events Character Singalong: October 25

Children 12 and under will receive a treat bag upon exiting. Parking is free in the north and south lot.

Hours are 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. nightly.
