The Chattanooga Zoo’s annual Boo in the Zoo is a family-friendly celebration filled with merry-not-scary decorations, trick-or-treat stations, scavenger hunt, costume contests, and more.
Boo in the Zoo will also be running for three weekends this year, giving Chattanoogans the option of enjoying the event on Oct. 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 or 30. Hours for this weekend event are 4-8 p.m. As a means of limiting high traffic event days, tickets are available for purchase online only, at chattzoo.org, and will be on a timed-entry basis. Guests will have the choice of entering the event at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., or 6 p.m. but can stay at the event until its end at 8 p.m., regardless of entry time.
With admission, guests will have access to tons of spooky fun, such as a magic show in the Education Center, a costume contest, a special Creepy Crawlies exhibit, a scavenger hunt, themed animal enrichment, and touring the Chattanooga Zoo at night--all decorated for Fall and Halloween. Additionally, there will be several offerings for purchase like camel and train rides and giraffe feedings. The snack carts and the Zoo Gift Shop will be open as well.
“Boo in the Zoo is a community favorite, and an event that we’re proud to host,” said Dardenelle Long, Chattanooga Zoo president and CEO. “While families enjoy the Fall atmosphere and learn about our reZOOdents, they’re also supporting the Zoo with each ticket sold. Now that’s scary good news!”
