About the Event

Friends  of Lee Richardson Zoo are pleased to present the 26th annual “Boo! at  the Zoo” Saturday, October 16, 2021. This year, all gates are open from 4  p.m. – 8 p.m. Lee Richardson Zoo will be closed all day, October 16,  before the event for preparations.

This  family-friendly evening among the animals includes a trick-or-treat  trail with ‘spooktacular’ treat stops, singing witches, conservation  fun, and a journey through a ghoulish graveyard. Guests are asked to  come hungry with an ogre-sized appetite, as the Safari Shoppe is selling  Frankenweenies (hot dogs), all your favorite chilling flavors of  Dippin’ Dots ice cream, and a variety of snacks and beverages. Support  the Zoo’s efforts to reduce waste by bringing your own trick-or-treat  bag from home!

“Boo!  at the Zoo” tickets are available beginning September 20 through  October 15 until 5 p.m. at the Zoo or until they run out at the other  ticket locations. Children ages 2 years old and under are free. Buy your  general admission tickets early at the discount price of $5.00 per  person at Blue Fox Boutique, El Remedio Market, Ward’s Garden Center,  and Lee Richardson Zoo. Tickets may also be purchased online at www.folrz.org until Friday, October 8, to ensure delivery. General admission at the gate is $10 per person.

Members-only  skeleton key passes are also available (for members with a  family/grandparent membership or higher-level membership). These passes  include a Haunted Hay Ride, an additional bag of goodies, and a special  entrance that bypasses the general admission line.  Skeleton Key passes  are limited and sell out quickly. Skeleton key passes are $15 each for  children ages 3-12 and $20 for young adults and the young at heart (ages  13 and over). Skeleton Key passes are sold exclusively through the  Friends’ office.
