2016 San Antonio Zoo Boo!

2016 San Antonio Zoo Boo!


October and football season is well underway but starting to also finally cool off (ish.) One of the fabulous perks of being a part of the San Antonio Zoo Troop of Bloggers is getting insider tips and tricks to upcoming events. In October, the Zoon is all about Zoo Boo! I brought Jaden (now 13!) and her sister Brianna to explore the awesome events you can enjoy, every Saturday and Sunday this month. We enjoyed painting pumpkins with non-toxic paint that will be fed to animals to eat, enjoy, and even play with! We wandered around the massive park, trick or treating (more places than Poke Stops — for you Pokemon Go lovers!) We ate at the Beastro and captured all of our great times on the video below.  Even if you’re not attending for October, I made sure to include lots of can’t miss details and planning tips to feel prepared, just take a look or ask me a question in the comments or on all my social channels.

Little ghouls and goblins, ages 12 years and under, are encouraged to don their best costumes while enjoying games, costume contests, a hay maze, trick-or-treating and much more. Adults may wear family friendly costumes but are discouraged from wearing masks. The zoo will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and weekend activities include:

  • Hay Maze and Monster Mash begin at 9 a.m.
  • Pumpkin Painting* and Halloween games* will begin at 11 a.m.
  • Costume Contests will be held at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
  • Trick or Treating throughout the zoo starts at 4 p.m.

NEW! Check out our video to learn all about our visit!
