Celebrate Halloween with Boo at the Zoo

The El Paso Zoo invites the public to the annual Boo at the Zoo event from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29.

Visitors are encouraged to wear their costumes and enjoy trick-or-treat candy stations and fun fall activities. Boo at the Zoo features an alligator alley haunted house, Zoo-rassic Park, an inflatable bounce house and slide, live entertainment, and much more.

Visitors will also get a chance to see the animals enjoy special Halloween enrichment treats, including pumpkins and piñatas.

The first 2,000 kids each day will receive a trick-or-treat bag and the first 200 guests each day will receive a free Krispy Kreme donut. With the exception of giraffe feeding and train rides, activities and candy stations will be provided at no cost, with paid admission.

Additional parking will be available at no cost at the El Paso County Coliseum, which is across the street from the Zoo.

Boo at the Zoo provides only certified sustainable palm oil candy and palm oil free candy at each candy station to bring awareness to wildlife habitat destruction worldwide. As an ingredient, palm oil is found in at least 4 out of 10 household products. Worldwide palm oil consumption is doubling every 10 years.

More than 85 percent of all palm oil globally produced and exported is from Indonesia and Malaysia, where the palm oil industry is linked to major issues such as deforestation, habitat loss, climate change, animal cruelty and human rights abuses.

Large-scale deforestation linked to unsustainable palm oil practices is pushing many species to extinction.

Many animal species worldwide connected to the animals at our Zoo – including Asian elephants Savannah and Juno, Sumatran orangutans Ibu, Khaleesi and Butch, and Malayan tigers Seri and Melor – could go extinct in the wild if nothing changes and the palm oil industry continues its current practices.
