Boo at the Zoo

31 Oct 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Boo at Zoo graphic with Ghosts, bats and scary cat.

Boo at the Zoo is Gainesville’s favorite Halloween treat for families. The students and staff transform the zoo into a spooky but safe trick or treating event for the whole family. All ages are welcome to join us in costume and trick or treat!

Admission to the event is one canned good or non-perishable food item per person. Cans collected help two charities – Saints Food Share at Santa Fe College, and Catholic Charities, which feed families in need around our community.

The zoo will be closed from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in order to prepare and transform the zoo into multiple themed areas with candy stations. This year’s themes include How to Train Your Dragon, The Wild West, Finding Nemo, Mario Kart, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and more!

In addition to the festivities and trick or treating in the zoo, Fun4GatorKids hosts 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.

Boo at the Zoo starts at 3:00 p.m. and runs until 7:30 p.m. We hope you’ll join us for our 26th annual event!
