Boo in the Zoo – 30th Anniversary

Presented by Banfield Pet Hospital

We're excited to announce Banfield Pet Hospital as our presenting sponsor for Boo in the Zoo's 30th anniversary!

Over the years, we've helped thousands of families make lasting memories through our annual Halloween event for children ages 12 and under. Boo in the Zoo features trick-or-treating, activity booths, an extinct species graveyard, a princess castle with characters and an un-haunted house.

For safety reasons, attendees are asked not to bring plastic pumpkins, Halloween bags or sacks. Instead, Harvest Hope Food Bank, our candy bag sponsor, will provide special treat bags for the children.

A free park and ride service will be available to transport attendees from County Square (301 University Ridge) to the Greenville Zoo. Three buses will run continuously between the two locations, from one hour before the event to 9 p.m. Attendees are strongly encouraged to utilize this free service, as parking will not be permitted on Woodland Way (from Cleveirvine Avenue to McDaniel Avenue) or on Woodland Way Circle, and parking in Cleveland Park is limited.

Children must be accompanied by an adult, and everyone is invited to come in costume. 

Memory Wall

This year's event will feature a memory wall with pictures from the past 30 years. The public is invited and encouraged to submit their Boo in the Zoo pictures for inclusion on the wall. Each family can submit up to five photos, and each submission must include the family's name and the year the photo was taken. Photos can be emailed to Please note that the zoo cannot guarantee that all photos will be used.
