Como Park Zoo Boo

(Twin Cities area)  Take a child in your life to Zoo Boo at Como Park.  When my kids were young, I loved this event even more than they did!

 

Note:  It does get very busy on warm nights, so don't be in a rush (or pick a colder night)!  Both children and adults need a ticket and I suggest that you buy them ahead of time (see below).



Como Zoo Boo Info.

Zoo Boo is a fund raiser for Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.  Zoo Boo is a non-scary Halloween event, recommended for children between the ages of 3 and 10, but everyone is welcome.  For this unique fall fundraiser, the grounds of Como Zoo are transformed into a world of fairytales and fun!  Over 200 live costumed characters interact and entertain children!  This magical event offers families a safe trick-or-treating experience and many Halloween surprises.

 

ZooBoo 2010 will take place from 4:30-7:30pm on October 16, 17, 22, 23, and 24.  The Zoo and Conservatory will close early at 3pm on those days to prepare the grounds for ZooBoo.Tickets are $7 per person at the gate (children 2 and under who do not wish to trick-or-treat are free). Tickets are valid for any night of the event.  All children wanting to trick-or-treat must have a child’s ticket.

 

Discounted $6 tickets are available in advance at Como’s Garden Safari Gifts, participating Cub Foods (after Oct. 1st) or online at the ZooBoo ticket store.

 

Children are encouraged to wear costumes, but many come dressed as they are.  This outdoor event is held rain or shine so please dress appropriately for the weather.

 

We encourage ZooBoo guests to use our FREE park and ride shuttle service during ZooBoo. The park and ride lot is a State Fair parking lot located next to the International Institute of MN (1694 Como Ave.), directly across from the MN State Fair grounds.
