*NEW THIS YEAR: Zoo Pumpkin Contest 

All Zoo fans are encouraged to decorate a pumpkin, or two, and donate it to the Zoo for it to be displayed during our annual Boo in the Zoo event! The Zoo will pick a 1st place winner and runner up each week of the event for a special prize! Pumpkins can be all shapes, sizes, and color, and decorated with paint, glitter, buttons, and more! We ask that pumpkins are not carved. 

1st Place winners will receive a free Zoo family membership for one year and recognition on the Zoo's social media platforms. 2nd Place runner ups will receive a family 4 pack Zoo admission tickets. 

Pumpkin drop off is during normal operating hours (9am-5pm) from October 17th - 24th at the Zoo Gift Shop. Help us decorate the Zoo for the most spooktaculur event of the year!

We’d love to have your help! Volunteers will be asked to work from 4:30pm to 9pm each night.
