It’s that time of year! Fall and Halloween events are right around the corner. Volunteers are needed for the Philadelphia Boo At The Zoo event coming up in October.

Every year, families come to walk around in their costumes and participated in halloween fun. The Zoo’s annual Halloween extravaganza is set for three fun-filled weekends of costumes, festive fall treats, and ghoulish fun.

As always, you’re invited to come dressed in your favorite costume. While there, you can trick-or-treat around the Zoo and enjoy seasonal décor, photo opportunities, festive fall offerings, fun children’s activities, and more!

Members can enjoy free admission, while non-members can get tickets for less than $20 here.

Advance online reservations are required for all ticket buyers and members. Reservations for the Zoo are non-refundable. The Zoo is open rain or shine. ​There are several opportunities to participate between October 15th and 30th. The event runs 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM.

Looking to get involved? The Zoo is looking for volunteers for some of the events. If you fill one of those spots, you are expected to assist with candy and activity stations throughout the zoo.
