Halloweekends kicks off this weekend! Make a free reservation and join us from 9 a .m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, October 17-18, 24-25 and 31.

Turn your weekend Zoo visit during the day into a spooky celebration at Halloweekends presented by SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital! Enjoy special discounts, fall-themed menus and non-scary Halloween decorations around the Zoo grounds. The animals will get in on the fun, too—watch as they receive special pumpkin enrichment!

Check out this video of some of our River's Edge animals receiving apple enrichment from Autumn with the Animals earlier this month. 

Halloweekends is separate from our nightly Boo at the Zoo and is not a trick-or-treating experience.

Free, timed-ticket reservations are required. For more information visit #StlZoo #FallAtTheZoo #StlZooBoo #Halloweekends
