Join the Utica Zoo as it hosts it’s 27th annual Spooktacular event from Friday, October 17th through Sunday the 19th. The event takes place at the Utica Zoo from 6 to 9PM on Friday & Saturday with a less scary day on Sunday from 12-4PM. The zoo will open at noon instead of 10am on Sunday the 27th to set up for the event. This year we welcome back the Haunted Hall and Forest of Fear Hayride with brand new themes to keep you on your toes! On Sunday the 19th we celebrate all the Fall season has to offer with continued Trick-o-Treat stations as well as kiddie games and other entertainment for the littlest ghouls and goblins. The Autumn Avenue will also be returning featuring arts, crafts, and baked goods from across the state.
