HallZOOween is more about the treats than the tricks.
Kids and zoo animals alike will be treated to special themed activities. Kids can trick-or-treat at stations scattered throughout the grounds, catch a show from Phil Dalton’s Theater of Illusion and even hop on the Hogwarts Express.
Be magically sorted at the Transfiguration Station, board the Scare-ousel and enjoy special animal encounters. Costumes are encouraged, as is bringing along your own treat bag to help the zoo go green.
Noon-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 27. Free with zoo admission: $15 adults; $9 kids. Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, 3400 Vine St., Avondale, cincinnatizoo.org.
