Boo at the Zoo is Gainesville's favorite Halloween treat for families. The students and staff transform the zoo into a spooky but safe trick or treating event for the whole family. Admission to the event is one canned good per person. Cans collected help two charities, Gainesville Harvest and Catholic Charities, which feed families in need from our community.

In addition, entertainment is provided by Danscompany of Gainesville which performs their "Thriller" trilogy several times throughout the event. Also, Domino's Pizza will be on hand to provide refreshments and food for a small fee.

The zoo is scheduled to be closed from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. in order to prepare and transform the zoo into 7 areas with 14 different candy stations that will be decorated in themes from children’s classics and fan favorites. Bring a camera so you can get a photo with yur favorites!

The Zoo will open at 3 p.m. on October 31, 2017.
Members - keep an eye out for information on your early admittance!
