Howl-O-Ween is an annual Halloween themed event at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo. This family fun event takes place on Oct. 15, 21, 22, 28 & 29 from 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m.
This family-oriented event features activities and attractions geared toward children from 8-15, although brave youngsters have found the event to be quite enjoyable.
For the more timid, there are events such as magic shows, face painting, fortune tellers, dancers and more. Braver children (and parents!) can enter the zoo’s special haunted attractions: The Haunted Hayride, Farmer Beardsley’s Farmstead, and the Ghastly Greenhouse.
Tickets for this event are $12 presale and for Zoo members and $15 on the night of the event. The ticket purchase includes two haunted houses, a haunted hayride, all performances, face painting, carousel rides and more. Food and beverages are not included, but are available at the Zoo’s Peacock Cafe during the event. Parking at the zoo is free!
