This year's Boo! at the Zoo is still on our calendar!  The details may change a bit but we are committed to continuing the tradition of providing a safe, family-friendly event for all to attend.  Please check back for updates! 

Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo are excited to present the 26th annual “Boo! At the Zoo,” Saturday, October 17, 2020.  All gates are open from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. (Hours may change) Lee Richardson Zoo will be closed all day October 17th before the event for preparations.

This family-friendly evening among the animals includes a trick-or-treat trail with ‘spooktacular’ treat stops, singing witches, conservation fun, and a journey through a ghoulish graveyard. Guests are asked to come hungry with an ogre-sized appetite, as the Safari Shoppe is selling Frankenweenies (hot dogs), all your favorite chilling flavors of Dippin’ Dots ice cream and a variety of snacks and beverages.  Support the Zoo’s efforts to reduce waste by bringing your own trick-or-treat bag from home! 

“Boo! at the Zoo” tickets are available beginning in September through October 16 until 5 p.m. at the Zoo or until they run out at the other ticket locations.  Children ages 2 years old and under are free.  Buy your general admission tickets early at the discount price of $5.00 per person. 

Sponsors for this year's Boo at the Zoo include Finney County CVB, Reeve Cattle, ProValue Insurance, Unger's Heating and Air, Scheopner's Water Conditioning, Royal Farm's Dairy, Comfort Specialists, and Tatro Plumbing.  Boo! at the Zoo is a benefit for improvements at Lee Richardson Zoo.
