Howl-O-Ween at The Living Desert

A Not-so-Spooky Zoo Adventure

The Living Desert’s family-friendly Halloween event returns with the wildly popular Howl-O-Ween, a not-so-spooky zoo adventure. The 23rd annual Howl-O-Ween is set for Sunday, October 29, from 9am to 12pm and Tuesday, October 31, from 6pm to 8:30pm. Visitors are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costumes and enjoy the exciting activities planned. Howl-O-Ween attendees under 12 will receive a candy bag to hit the trick-or-treat trail with a large variety of treat stations. New this year, Howl-O-Ween visitor ghosts, goblins, and super-heroes can visit the park’s African animals– trick or treat with the cheetahs and zebras, say boo to the warthogs, and wander through Village WaTuTu. Additional activities include pumpkin bowling, pumpkin decorating, face painting, a monster maze, live entertainment and more. Zookeepers will provide special animal encounters and The Living Desert’s zoo mascots will also be making appearances throughout.
