Enjoy two weekends of free spooky fun at Halloweekends at the Saint Louis Zoo! Come to the Zoo dressed in family friendly costumes and as you walk around to see the animals you'll find non-scary Halloween decorations, watch special pumpkin enrichment treats with the animals, experience costumed character meet-and-greets, enjoy the Family Game Zone, take part in the Pumpkin Stomp 'n Chomp, enjoy fall treats and more.
Guests can visit the Caribbean Cove, see their favorite Zoo attractions, and get in on the Zoo's Instragram contest using hashtags #Halloweekends, #StlZoo #FallAtTheZoo, and #StlZooBoo.
Scary costumes are not allowed, according to the Zoo's Halloween Costume Policy. Facial features of guests age 13 and older must be recognizable (no masks, no face paint that completely conceals the face).
Halloweekends take place two consecutive weekends, October 19-20 and October 26-27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Admission is free and there will be special discounts on fall-themed food and drinks.
