Boo at the Zoo

It’s time for the ghouls and goblins to take over the ABQ BioPark!

Boo a the Zoo Banner 2023

Boo at the Zoo | Saturday, October 28, 2023 | 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

It’s time to put on your thinking gourds for costume ideas, dust off the pumpkin buckets and pull out the pillowcases for your little ghouls and goblins! Presented by After Hours Pediatrics, join us as the Zoo transforms into a “monster mash” Halloween bash! Trick-or-treating is the reason for the season, but that is not the only happening that day. Lift your spirits with fun educational activities, boo tunes, a crafting station, frightfully fun games, special guest characters, and more!

This family-friendly event is a New Mexico BioPark Society fundraiser supporting the ABQ BioPark, so we invite you to come out for a spell for a wicked good time and a fang-tastic cause.
