U.S. Cellular presents the final two nights of Knoxville’s largest Halloween event Saturday and Sunday.


Zoo Knoxville is celebrating Halloween with the final two nights of BOO! at the Zoo presented by U.S. Cellular on Saturday, Oct. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 28, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. each evening.  To make sure the slight chance of rain does not put a damper on the fun, the zoo will be doubling the amount of treats for guests.


A Halloween tradition for 32 years, this “not-too-scary” family event features trick-or-treating through the zoo along the BOO! Trail, the Bank of America Monster Mash Dance Party, friendly costumed characters and entertainers each night.  Additional activities include the Scary-Go-Round, the only “haunted” carousel in East Tennessee, and the BOO! Choo Train.


Boo! at the Zoo tickets are $10 per person on Saturday night and $9 per person on Sunday night. Children under four are admitted free.  Parking is free.  Tickets are available online at booknoxville.com, by phone at (865) 637-5331 and at the zoo’s ticket office during regular zoo hours.  Zoo Knoxville annual passholders and U.S. Cellular customers receive a discount on tickets.


Zoo Knoxville passholders and U.S. Cellular customers can take advantage of the U.S. Cellular® Speed Pass Lane for expedited early entry into the event.
