Halloween events in DC include hauntingly good fun for the whole family at the zoo.
Halloween events in the DC area get better every year, and 2015 is no exception. If you're in search of fun and unique events for children in DC this Halloween, don't miss the annual Boo at the Zoo celebration. Trick-or-treaters can visit the National Zoo dressed in their Halloween best October 23 through 25, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., where treats are in store for the whole family.
Explore the Halloween-themed hay maze, the decorated trails, the scarecrow field and the first-ever pumpkin decorating contest. You'll also enjoy new additions that include an entertainment stage with live musicians, jugglers and a terrifyingly talented DJ spinning some of your favorite haunting melodies. All that exploration and dancing doesn't come without rewards; there will be more than 40 treat stations set up throughout the zoo to dispense traditional Halloween favorites, and there's even a Whole Foods Market for some delicious, healthy alternatives.
The biggest attraction is the animals, of course. You and your family can visit the Ed-zoo-cation Stations to get up close and personal with some of the most famous residents and their keepers. You'll see lions and tigers, say "Hello" to the giant pandas and even meet some creatures that only come out at night.
