Here’s a fun event for your little ghosts and goblins.  Halloween at the Henry Vilas Zoo will take place on Sunday, October 28th from 10 am to 4 pm.

Kids get a chance to dress up in costume and trick-or-treat throughout the zoo.  There’s also a Fun Activity Tent and live music, too.

This trick-or-treating event has been around since 1987.

Halloween at the Zoo has proven itself to be a steadfast, supported and celebrated tradition that is endorsed by local Police & Fire agencies as, “A neat place to meet for a safe trick-or-treat.” Since its inception in 1987, the event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the Henry Vilas Zoo.
