KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Zoo Knoxville is kicking off its annual Boo! at the Zoo Halloween event on Thursday. The event is Knoxville’s largest Halloween event, featuring 12 nights of safe and not-too-scary fun over three weekends.
Boo! at the Zoo runs Thursdays through Sundays October 6-9, 13-16 and 20-23 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. each evening. The family event features trick-or-treating through the zoo along the Boo! Trail, the Chick-fil-A Monster Mash tent, costumed characters and entertainers, and a “haunted” carousel called the “Scary-Go-Round.”
Tickets are $9 per person, but children under four are admitted for free. Parking is also free. Tickets can be bought by phone by calling (865) 637-5331, at Zoo Knoxville’s website, or at the ticket office during regular hours.
