Boo at the Zoo

Thu, 10/09/2014 - 6:30pm - Sun, 10/26/2014 - 9:30pm

Celebrate the most spooktacular time of the year with your little monster at Knoxville’s largest Halloween event!

BOO! at the Zoo presented by U.S. Cellular® kicks off 12 nights of safe and not-too-scary Halloween fun Thursday, Oct. 9-12 and continuing
Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 16-19 and Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 23- 26, from 5:30-8:00 p.m. each evening.

BOO! at the Zoo, a Halloween tradition for 28 years, is a family event featuring devilishly good music and games at the Monster Mash tent in The Clayton Family Kids Cove, friendly costumed characters throughout the zoo, and the only “haunted” carousel in East Tennessee, the Scary-Go-Round. (How can you tell it’s haunted? It goes backwards, of course.)

One of the highlights of BOO! at the Zoo is trick-or-treating along the BOO! Trail, where little trick-or-treaters can fill their bag with goodies as they make their way through the zoo. Each night of BOO! at the Zoo will also feature a variety of entertainment, from dancers and jugglers to out-of-this-world STAR WARS characters. For updated information about each evening’s activities, visit the zoo’s Facebook page at
