Boo at the zoo

Date: 27 Oct 2018 - 28 Oct 2018

Boo at the zoo

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

Children aged four to 16 can get in free if they come in fancy dress.

There will be a fang-tastic day of fiendish fun for all the family, including:

  • terrifying touch table
  • fiendish face painting
  • ‘not so scary’ Halloween shows with Mr Hullabaloo’s interactive children’s theatre
  • Meet the barn owl sessions
  • Meet the reptile sessions
  • bewitching bat talks
  • and you can even bring along your own pumpkin and watch as the animals tuck into them at the ‘trick or treat’ feeding times.

So hop on your broomstick and get your ‘little monsters’ to ‘boo at the zoo’ this Halloween!
