Boo At The Zoo: Atlanta’s favorite family Halloween festival begins this weekend

Atlanta’s favorite family Halloween festival returns at Boo at the Zoo presented by Xfinity, Saturdays and Sundays, October 22, 23, 29 and 30.

Guests will enjoy sampling sweet treats along magical pathways while meeting a whimsical cast of costumed characters. Kids of all ages can explore an all-new expanded hay maze presented by Mitcham Farms. Older children will appreciate a visit to a new spooky safari outpost inhabited by an eccentric ranger and his creepy collection of relics. Other highlights will include rides on the Candy Express Zoo Train; costume contests; Halloween dance tunes by Little Beat Music; and games at the Zoo Boo Town carnival.

Three of the Zoo’s most beloved great ape youngsters also observe birthdays during Boo at the Zoo. Boo-goers are invited to join in festivities for Dumadi the Sumatran orangutan this Saturday the 22nd; celebrate gorilla twins Kali and Kazi on Sunday, October 30. Guests recycling cell phones during Boo at the Zoo will receive special treats at the Willie B. Gorilla Conservation Center; proceeds from cell phone recycling benefit gorillas and their habitats in the wild through the Zoo’s partner in conservation, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. Costumes are welcome and encouraged. Boo at the Zoo is free for Zoo Atlanta Members and children under 3; free with general admission. Visit for more information, and check the Zoo map on the day of the event for a full listing of activities, times and locations.
