From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., you’ll be able to paint a pumpkin that
will be displayed throughout the Zoo’s signature Halloween
events—Pumpkin Path (October 20-21) and Little Boo
(October 18-19)! The pumpkins will then be given to some of your
favorite Zoo animals as special Halloween enrichment during
Jumping Pumpkins (October 27-28).
Throughout the day on October 13, Fall Fur All showcases great
live entertainment, family-friendly games, strolling magic, an
artistic pumpkin-carving demonstration, a zoo-themed bounce
house, and more.
You’ll find fabulous fall fun in Nature’s Neighborhood,
too, as you navigate a mini straw maze, see an animal show and
watch a spider feeding demonstration. With major sponsorship
from McDonald’s and pumpkin-decorating sponsorship from Giant
Eagle, this event is free with regular Zoo admission. Learn more
