Boo at the Zoo's Record-Breaking Success

Over 29,000 of Nashville’s littlest ghosts and goblins attended the Nashville Zoo’s annual Halloween tradition, Boo at the Zoo this October. The event, presented by The Children's Hospital at TriStar Centennial, was a huge success breaking last year’s Ghouls at Grassmere attendance record. Families had the opportunity to trick-or-treat amongst the animals on the Story Tail Treat Trail, meet the favorite characters such as the Smurfs, princesses and superheroes, take a ride on the Howl-O-Ween hayride, and brave the zombies hiding on the Frightful Farm.

This year’s event was made possible by generous sponsorship by Delta Dental, Coca-Cola, Irwin Entertainment, Golden Flake, and our title sponsor, The Children’s Hospital at TriStar Centennial. The Nashville Zoo also wants to thank all of the volunteers who donated their time to make all eight nights seamless and enjoyable for guests! 

Thank you again for your support of Boo at the Zoo and Nashville Zoo! We hope you enjoy these fun photos commemorating each weekend!
