Saturday, October 25 & Sunday, October 26

Children throughout New England are invited to trick-or-treat among the animals. Thrills, chills and animals lurk around every corner on the Trick-or-Treat Trail. Other haunted happenings include creepy crafts, ghoulish games, costume contests and a haunted maze! Throughout the day, guests will learn about the importance of enrichment as they watch animals receive Halloween-themed items. Visitors will also not want to miss the hay rides that will be available on both event days.
