KCZoo Hoots & Howls


Hoots & Howls

Join us for some not-so-spooky fun at Hoots & Howls on Saturday, October 5 and Sunday, October 6. We are kicking off fall with entertainment and activities for all ages. See the sights on a hay ride, ride a pedal tractor, navigate a hay bale maze and have your face painted like your favorite animal. Shake your "ghoul thing" at the Monster Mash Bash and visit the Tatzoo Parlor.  The Slitherin' Snake Shed and the Felton Skeleton are a haunting good time. Have your picture taken with a costumed character. Our animals are joining in the fun by smashing pumpkins. 
Hoots & Howls is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this weekend, October 5 & 6 and next weekend, October 12 & 13.  It's a spooktacular time for the whole family.
