Mummies and daddies are invited to bring their little ghouls and goblins to a day of safe and free trick-or-treating at the St. Louis Zoo's Spooky Saturday. Admission is free from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fun activities are happening from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Kids will encounter surprises and goodies along the way, along with their favorite costumed characters and entertainment. There will be educational activity stations, animal encounters and more. Spooky Saturday is not a trick-or-treating experience.
Kids 12 and under should wear their Halloween costumes because there will be plenty of photo opportunities, including haystacks, pumpkins, and of course, the Zoo animals! It is a safe Halloween event all ghouls and goblins are sure to enjoy.
Because Boo at the Zoo Spooky Saturday on October 27, 2018, is a family-friendly event, visitors over age 13 in costume are not allowed unless they are accompanying children. Specifically, the Zoo's policy requires no adults can be wearing a mask or otherwise have their face covered with face-painting, etc.
