October 11, 2023 – Boo at the Zoo returns to the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo on Halloween, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023, from 3-7 p.m. The SF Teaching Zoo is located on the Northwest Campus, 3000 NW 83 Street, Gainesville.
Boo at the Zoo is Gainesville’s wildest Halloween event for the whole family. All ages are welcome to join us in costume and trick or treat!
Admission is one canned good or non-perishable food item per person. Canned goods will be donated to local food banks.
The zoo will be closed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in order to prepare and transform the zoo into multiple themed areas with candy stations. This year, explore the worlds of Mario Kart, Pixie Hollow, 100 Acre Woods, A Bug’s Life, Medieval Kingdom, Jurassic Park, Pirate Treasure Hunt and Hercules!
In addition to the festivities and trick or treating in the zoo, Fun4GatorKids will host a KidsZone in front of the zoo full of community organizations with crafts, activities, and even more candy. There will be live entertainment, animal encounters, games and food available for purchase at the event.
Because of the crowds that attend, traffic will be rerouted on the Northwest Campus. From 2 until 7:30 p.m., North Road will be closed to vehicle traffic from NW 91st Street to the SF Gym to ensure the safety of visitors to Boo at the Zoo. SF students, faculty and staff will need to find an alternate route to get on or off campus during those hours.
We hope to see you for our 27th annual event!
