YES, there is trick-or-treating.
Most people are familiar with the Halloween ditty, "Trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me som ething good to eat." The Milwaukee County Zoo discourages feet-smelling at this event, but kids are welcome to go trick-or-treating throughout the Zoo. There'll be all sorts of frighteningly fun activities. March in the costume parade at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Get lost in the haystack maze. Check the schedule to see when Zoo animals such as elephants smash and eat treat-filled pumpkins. Then stop by the Peck Welcome Center to buy a caramel apple. In the Small Mammals Building, learn about bats and how you can help save their habitats. Meet pirate Jack Sparrow at the Pirate's Cove and on Saturday enjoy tunes from Razzmatazz. Marvel at the giant hand-carved pumpkins near the Lake Evinrude landing. And, of course, visit animal exhibits.
