YES, there is trick-or-treating.
Put on your Halloween best and head to the Milwaukee County Zoo. It's no trick—it's time for treats! The Zoo's annual Halloween Spooktacular is back to delight with frighteningly fun activities for the family.
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 enjoy 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 as you trick-or-treat throughout the Zoo.
