An Old School Horror Bash at the Buttonwood Park Zoo

Friday, October 20th
7:30 – 11:00 PM

Join us for a blood curdling evening of “old-school” horror fun at the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society’s 2nd annual Halloween event, HOWL!  This 21+ event will be held on Friday, October 20th from 7:30-11 PM at the Buttonwood Park Zoo.  The evening will include live music by The Nebulas in our Grooveyard followed by the screaming sounds of DJ Stephanie, killer brew tasting room, wicked cocktails, animal encounters and frightfully good food truck offerings.  Costumes are not required, but we encourage guests to wear throwback costumes to classic horror films.

Don’t be caught dead without your costume!  We’ll be judging in the following categories: Best Costume, Best Couple Costume, Best Group Costume, Most Creative, and Best 80’s Theme.

All events coordinated by the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society play a key role in raising critical fund for the Buttonwood Park Zoo.  These funds endure the highest level of animal care, environmental education and wildlife education programs.  The future of the Zoo is bright and with the generous support of the community we will continue to educate and enrich many lives.
