With a hair-raising chill in the air, spooky decorations and wild animals galore, there's nothing quite like Halloween at the Milwaukee County Zoo. That's why you should join us for Boo at the Zoo, a kid-friendly fall celebration.

Channel Edgar Allan Poe as you board the "Raven's Rail" train. Listen for the howls of gray wolves as the Oct. 18 full moon illuminates the sky. Then, let a dancing light show guide you through Wolf Woods. Wander through a haystack maze in the Northwestern Mutual Family Farm, but don't get lost—you never know what costumed characters are roaming the Zoo at night. Once you've made your way out of the maze, visit the feline mall. You'll find a pumpkin patch with hundreds of jack-o'-lanterns carved by Zoo Pride volunteers. End your evening with a crisp and gooey caramel apple available for purchase in the Peck Welcome Center.
