Creep it real this Halloween in Oakland, for yourself and your family! While COVID is in our ghostly midst, there are still plenty of fun, safe, and physically distant activities to keep you spirited. 👻

Check out all the different ways you can spend Halloween in The Town.

Boo at The Zoo

October 24-31, 10am-4pm
Adapted this year for social distancing, the Oakland Zoo is extending Boo at the Zoo from a single weekend to an eight-day event; to eliminate crowding and provide all our Halloween guests a safe, family-friendly ‘pink flamingo scavenger hunt'. Grab a program as you enter the Zoo and follow the clues on our self-guided scavenger hunt to find all the costumed pink flamingos hidden throughout the Zoo. Instead of trick or treating in the Zoo this year, we are safely handing out pre-stuffed goodie bags to all children. 

Come and safely celebrate Halloween at Oakland Zoo this year!
