Spooky Zoo Spectacular is a family friendly Chicago event that celebrates the animals of the zoo and the Halloween holiday! There will be tons of family friendly activities with a Halloween twist!In addition to all the things to do that are always at the Lincoln Park Zoo, there will be a Haunted House, arts and crafts, trick-or-treating, a costume parade and more!
Just like anywhere else, you want to dress up in order to get candy while you're trick-or-treating! There's also a costume contest for those who would like to compete!
Admission to the Lincoln Park Zoo is always free and this event is no different!
Take Public Transportation. Parking at the Lincoln Park Zoo is free for the first 30 minutes, but after that there's a charge. It's $30 if you stay 5 hours or more, but there are plenty of Chicago buses (CTA buses 151 and 156 drop you off right in front of the zoo) so that you can avoid parking payments all together!
