Celebrate the Season at HallZOOween at the Cincinnati Zoo

The Polar Bear Pumpkin Bash. The Reptile Meet-and-Greet. The Kroger Cheetah Encounter. These are just a handful of the ways that you can celebrate HallZOOween this year at the Cincinnati Zoo. Every weekend in October, the zoo's critters and staff celebrate the season with a spooky lineup of family-friendly activities.

From noon to 5 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday, kids can score sweet loot at the trick-or-treat stations scattered around the zoo. They can watch polar bears play with pumpkins and elephants smash would-be jack-o-lanterns. Check out the Beauty Shop of Horrors, take a ride on the Hogwarts Express, and go for a spin on the Scare-ousel while you're at HallZOOween. Kids are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and enjoy the family-friendly event, which is free with zoo admission ($12+).
