Assiniboine Park Zoo Halloween Weekend Spooktacular

Winnipeggers were crushed last year when Assiniboine Park Zoo announced that they will no longer host their annual Boo at the Zoo event. But fear not, the Zoo is back with a new Halloween Weekend Spooktacular.

There will be various special Halloween-themed events and activities from Friday, October 24 to Sunday, October 26, 2014. Zoo visitors in costume will save 25% off regular Zoo admission during the Weekend Spooktacular!

Daily Events:

  • 10:00am – The Bat Cave (Kinsmen Discovery Centre)
  • 12:00pm – Wild Wolves (Journey to Churchill)
  • 2:00pm – Slithering Snakes (Toucan Ridge)

A Spooky Scavenger Hunt throughout the Zoo will have visitors hunting for Spooky Spots on a checklist. Checklists can then be submitted to Wild Things Unique Gifts, located inside the Zoo entrance, to receive Halloween treats.

The Tundra Grill will also be selling specially featured Spooky Snacks. Winston, the Assiniboine Park Zoo mascot, will be making appearances on Saturday and Sunday at the Zoo entrance from 10:00am to 2:00pm in his Halloween costume.
