By day, the Milwaukee County Zoo's 200-year-old urban forest is a drop of nature in a sea of urbanity. Lake Evinrude is a placid body of water that calms the soul. But at night, who knows what prowls deep inside the forest, or what lurks beneath the murky depths of the lake? But don’t be frightened – come to this kid-friendly event and enjoy the Zoo on a refreshing autumn night. You can run wild with ghosts and goblins. Then, go near Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country and check out a pumpkin patch with hundreds of jack-ó-lanterns carved by Zoo Pride volunteers. Visit the Wolf Woods exhibit for a musical light show with eerily creative displays. Make your way through a not-so-spooky haystack maze on the Lake Evinrude Deck. Purchase caramel apples and make paper bat ears to wear in the Peck Welcome Center. Finally, consider going on a ghostly train ride through the Zoo.
