Boo at the Zoo


Dress up in costume for one of San Francisco Zoo & Garden’s most popular family Halloween events, “Boo at the Zoo,” on Saturday and Sunday, October 27 & 28!  Trick-or-treat at multiple stations throughout the Zoo and watch animals gobble up gourds and enjoy Halloween-themed enrichment treats during the Pumpkin Stomp & Chomp. Dress up in costume and head to the otter habitat at 11:00 am to line up, participate and watch the Costume Parade and Contest with judges choosing winners in several different categories, including Best Animal Costume, Best Family and Judges' Choice.  Have a creepy, crawly critter adventure at the Insect Zoo, teaming with more than a thousand multi-legged bugs. Support the Zoo’s efforts to reduce waste by bringing your own trick-or-treat bag from home!
