Boo at the Zoo

Event has passed!

Join us for a new and improved take on our annual trick-or-treat alternative. For 30 years, The Zoo has enhanced the Halloween season for thousands by offering a safe and fun place for families to celebrate together.
This year, the New Mexico BioPark Society is proud to continue the tradition of thrilling your family with our tricks and treats… join us at the new and improved Boo at the Zoo on October 26, presented by After Hours Pediatrics! This long-standing event has now become an annual fundraiser, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the BioPark, which makes us so excited, it’s scary.
Trick-or-Treating in Zoo Central
Take your ghouls and goblins by the hand and stop by our multiple vendor booths along our Trick-or-Treat Trail! We promise more treats than tricks.
Haunted Habitats
Zookeepers become “Boo-keepers” for the day, as they transform select exhibits into spine-chilling spaces. If they got it, they’ll haunt it!
Photo Opportunities
Get candid with your favorite characters! Pose with a princess! Snap a pic with Star Wars characters! You never know who else will be there for your photography pleasure!
Costume Recognition
Come dressed in your best spooky, silly, fun or fabulous costume! Once you enter the Zoo, our undercover judges will be wandering around and awarding prizes to the best costumed guests. You won’t know who’s a judge, so be ready to show off your threads!
Animal Enrichment
Animals love Howl-o-ween! Help create treats our Zoo residents will enjoy throughout Halloween week! From painting a pumpkin to blinging out a bag, these items will be squished, stomped or torn into as part of their enrichment (all items are animal safe and approved by vets!)
Spooky music and devilish decorations transform our carousel into the Scare-ousel! Don’t forget to trick-or-treat at this location, too.
