Nashville Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo Event Runs Through Oct. 30

Nashville Zoo’s popular Boo at the Zoo will celebrate a safe Halloween for six nights a week from October 15 – 30. To address social distancing, the event will take place over a longer period, limit nightly attendance, and require timed entries.

“About 40,000 guests attend Boo at the Zoo every year,” said Kindell Williams, Nashville Zoo’s Director of Special Events. “We have worked hard and found ways to keep everyone safe while providing an exciting evening that our guests expect from Nashville’s top family attraction.”

The event will offer a one-way path featuring treat stations, themed areas, photo opportunities, entertainment, rides, and more. A full list of activities can be found at
