The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden invites Halloween fans, 21 and older, to embrace their enthusiasm for the strange and spooky at this year’s annual Haunt the Zoo: All Grown Up.

Returning to the Oklahoma City Zoo on Friday, October 27, from 7 to 11 p.m., Haunt the Zoo: All Grown Up is Oklahoma City’s premier Halloween party providing a festive night for thrill seekers to explore the Zoo after-hours. This popular celebration continues to connect adults to the Halloween season in fun and memorable ways. Inspiration for this year’s All Grown Up theme stems from the bizarre world of botanicals! Guests will go wild for a night of fun, fright and creepy carnivorous plants as they encounter a variety of custom decorations and elaborate photo props that bring the event’s theme to life.

Party goers will also enjoy the exclusive Haunt the Zoo: All Grown Up haunted trail, a dozen bars featuring specialty cocktails and brews, lawn games, unlimited “scare”-ousel rides and dancing to music provided by DJ Kora Waves and DJ Limitless! Take time to enjoy delicious bites available for purchase from Food Truck vendors, Psycho Taco, Oh My Gogi, JD’s Eats and Brasco’s Chicken & Waffles. Halloween is about the costumes and All Grown Up guests are encouraged to dress the part! Real or fake weapons and full coverage masks are prohibited.
