Zoo Miami is hosting two great events this weekend for Halloween.

Zoo Boo is one of South Florida’s premier Halloween events where there’s something for everyone.

Plus, watch and enjoy as our wild animals get a special Halloween treat of their own!

Brave souls can be terrified at Dr. Wilde’s Creepy House, on the Zombie-laden tram ride and along the disturbing pathways of Spooky Zoo. Little ones can enjoy ghoulish carousel rides, creepy crawlies and candy stations at the Children’s Zoo.
