Nashville Zoo's frightfully fun adults-only event BOOze at the Zoo is Thursday, October 12 from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. This all-out Halloween party will include unlimited BOOze samples, costumes, trick-or-treating, a live DJ and plenty of party animals.
Guests can treat their inner child as they stroll through Trick-or-Treat trail to collect treats, explore festive scenes and meet Gourdon the Talking Pumpkin for some jokes and sassy one-liners. BOOze at the Zoo includes unlimited samples of beer, wine and cocktails from Nashville's favorite adult beverage purveyors. Food will also be available for purchase from local food trucks. This ultimate Halloween party would not be complete without a costume contest and an unbeatable prize, a free behind-the-scenes tour at the Zoo. Festive décor and backdrops throughout the Zoo will compliment any wild costume and make for the perfect photo backdrop.
Some of the Zoo's party animals including Andean bears, Sumatran tigers and the flamingo flock will stay up until 8:00 pm and special animal encounters will be taking place on pathways throughout the night. At 7:00 and 8:00 pm, guests can enjoy an interactive Halloween-themed animal show at the amphitheater and watch the Zoo's ambassador animals demonstrate their natural abilities.
