Celebrate Halloween at the Zoo During Our Annual Howl-O-Ween Extravaganza!

One of our personal favorite ways to celebrate the Halloween season is through our very own Halloween event here at the Snake Farm! During this spooktacular event, you can attend our 14 Halloween-themed animal shows and indulge in yummy treats from over a dozen trick-or-treating stations. Since trick-or-treating wouldn’t be the same without dressing up, we encourage you to visit us in your Halloween costume as we celebrate our annual Howl-O-Ween Extravaganza on October 28th and 29th! And that’s not all; to make this Halloween at the Zoo even sweeter, your kids can get in for FREE when you purchase tickets for this event on our website! Since supplies are limited, we encourage guests to pounce on this deal as soon as possible.

Now that we’ve told you a little bit about our Halloween event, it’s time to share even more about one thing that makes it particularly unique: our fun-filled trick or treat stations! While many of these stations offer the traditional trick or treat experience, a few of them take this experience to the next level by encouraging you to meet some of our creepiest, crawliest residents! At these stations, you can face your fears by holding critters like centipedes and Harriett our hairy tarantula. Keep reading to discover some of our favorite Halloween events in Austin!
