Boo at the Zoo is El Paso's wildest trick-or-treat in town! This family-friendly offers candy stations for trick-or-treating, pumpkin bowling, games, a maze, animal enrichment activities and much more! Boo at the Zoo provides a safe place for children to trick-or-treat and allows families to celebrate together in a fun environment. Guests are invited to wear their costumes and enjoy candy stations, live entertainment, a glow in the dark bug room, the Haunted Alligator Alley, caricature artist Nacho Garcia, pumpkin bowling, inflatable games, more than 20 animal enrichment activities and much more. Don’t miss out on the elephant pumpkin squish each day at 2:30 p.m. when our elephants will get gigantic pumpkins!

Activities and candy stations are provided at no cost with paid admission. Parking is limited and additional parking will be available at the County Coliseum across the street from the Zoo.

For the 3rd year, Boo at the Zoo will provide palm oil free candy at each candy station. Zoo guests will discover how they can help slow down tropical habitat destruction through their informed shopping choices. To learn more, click here.  

The first 2,000 kids each day will receive a trick-or-treat bag. 

This event is presented by Robert Bonaventure and supported by KVIA-7 and Univision Channel 26, Whataburger, Banes General Contractors and the Mesilla Valley Maze and Family Fun Farm.
