Free with Zoo admission
Kids can trick or treat with the animals at Brookfield Zoo at this not-so-scary event during the three weekends leading up to Halloween. Candy stations will be spread throughout the zoo for kids to trick or treat in or out of costume. Other activities include giant pumpkin carving, a halloween craft, cupcake and cookie decorating, a haunted hayride, creepy cowboy carousel, a corn maze, a pumpkin smasher, costume parade, and costume contest. Zookeepers will give special chats about Halloween-related critters such as bats, spiders, owls, scorpions, wolves, snakes, and ravens.
