The Oklahoma City Zoo is thrilled to host the 39th annual Haunt the Zoo for Halloween, Oklahoma’s largest and longest running Halloween season celebration! Presented by Oklahoma’s Own News9, Haunt the Zoo brings families together for a unique, outdoor trick-or-treating experience in a safe environment. Trick-or-treaters will discover themed photo booths along the Haunt the Zoo trail as they collect treats from friendly volunteers. Volunteers will distribute candy and snacks through 8-foot “treat tubes” into official Haunt the Zoo bags from a safe distance. Show off your festive best and wear your Halloween costume to Haunt the Zoo. Adults are encouraged to dress up, too, but nothing scary.
