HallowZOOeen will feature a variety of activities and games for kids to enjoy.
A spooky and thrilling (but not too frightening) Halloween adventure awaits you and your family at the Tulsa Zoo October 27 through 31. A “spooktacular” event, the 19th annual HallowZOOeen is presented by Kum & Go and is sure to delight both children and adults!
Get everyone decked out in their costumes and come out to the coolest neighborhood in town. At HallowZOOeen you can get lots of yummy treats from corporate-sponsored Goblin Stops, play games and see zoo mascots as you roam the trick-or-treat trail. It is an evening of safe, un-boo-lievable family entertainment. “It’s really one of the most fun times to come out to the zoo,” says Angela Evans, public relations and marketing coordinator for the Tulsa Zoo.
Admission to HalloZOOeen is $6 per person and only $5 for Zoo Friends members. For special savings, pick up $1-off coupons at your local Kum & Go stations. Or, sign up for a membership at the zoo during the month of October and receive two free HallowZOOeen tickets.
