Pumpkin Bash and Trick-or-Treating

Friday, October 31, 2014 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM

Pumpkins for the animals, trick-or-treating, and more are in store for little goblins and ghosts at Woodland Park Zoo’s family-friendly Pumpkin Bash. Discover a repertoire of animal behavior as hippos, bears, elephants, monkeys, and other animals crunch, smash or stomp on pumpkins!

The pumpkins are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals, promote natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and engage zoo visitors.


Avoid lines and buy your general admission tickets in advance, or become a member for unlimited admission all year long! Please note: discounts and coupons are not applicable for online ticket purchases.
