Boo at the zoo

29 October 2016


Dust the cobwebs off your favourite costume and jump on your broomstick to Belfast Zoo.

There will be a FANG-tastic day of fiendish fun for all the family at the Cave Hill site, including creepy crafts, freaky face painting, bewitching bat talks and you can even watch the animals tucking into their special 'trick or treat' pumpkins.

So hop on your broomstick and get your 'little monsters' to BOO at the ZOO this Halloween.

Children under 16 MUST be accompanied by an adult. We are open from 10am, last admission is 2.30pm and the zoo closes at 4pm.

For more information, call us on 028 9077 6277.
