Looking to experience some of the best Halloween festivities the entire family will love?  You're in luck!  The Oklahoma City Zoo has plenty for everyone to see and do in the month of October so open your calendars and start saving the dates!

First things first, if you haven't experienced the Oklahoma City Zoo (which is ranked as the third-best Zoo for kids in the country by Child Magazine) then you need to visit during October.  It's the last month that the Zoo will be open for seasonal attractions such as the ever-so-popular Stingray Bay or Weekend Keeper Connections which allows you to talk to the rock stars of the Zoo to learn about your favorite animals from the people who care for them.
On October 17, experience Chomp and Stomp with the animals.  They love special treats in the fall so the Zoo is throwing them a Halloween party where a variety of animals get to enjoy some Halloween-themed treats.  The event happens from 10am-2pm with Zoo admission.  We'd love to see all of your Instagram shots feeding the animals so use #SeeOKC when you're out there and we will be sure to show you some love!

Want to save a few bucks on admission early in October? Bring a pumpkin larger than your head and receive free Zoo admission October 4-12.  The pumpkins help the zoo get ready for Haunt the Zoo but only one per person can be used for the discount.

So, what is Haunt the Zoo, you ask?  It's probably my most favorite thing each fall and I am well past the time when trick-or-treating is acceptable.  Haunt the Zoo happens October 26-31 and is the most magical Halloween party to hit the Adventure District.  Rain or shine, Haunt the Zoo allows children to follow the pumpkin-lined path to themed booths full of their favorite candy.  There is an admission price for the kids but adults accompanying will receive free admission.  And, dressing up in your favorite costume is highly encouraged!  There will be tons of mascots ready to snap a pic with the kids and professional photographers will be on site to help you save those memories.

Check out the Zoo's website for what's coming in November, too!  They're open all year with the exception of a few holiday's and the animals would just hate it if you didn't stop by!
