It’s one of our favorite events of the year…HallZOOween at the Cincinnati Zoo featuring four weekends of fun (October 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, & 29-30). The always spooktacular event lets children (12 and under) trick-or-treat throughout the Zoo. Please note, this event is BYOB (bring your own bag).
Details from our friends at The Zoo:
- Stop by the Zoo’s Beauty Shop of Horrors for fingernail painting and cool temporary tattoos and witness one of the area’s best magical entertainers – Phil Dalton’s Theater of Illusion. Marvel at the magic each Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the Wings of Wonder Theater.
- The always-popular Search for the Golden Frisch’s Big Boy is back again this year! Two golden big boy statues will be hidden around the Zoo each day of HallZOOween. The two lucky visitors who find them will receive a Frisch’s and Cincinnati Zoo prize package valued at $150. Guests will also enjoy the 4-D Experience in the Zoo’s Special FX 4-D Theater! (There is an additional cost for this attraction.)
