Wander the zoo grounds after dark at this spooktacular event!
Feeling frighteningly festive this year? Be sure to mark your calendars for Adults Night Out: The Great Pumpkin Glow at the Lincoln Park Zoo, October 28, where adults can (trick or) treat themselves to a hauntingly good time!
October is back to its best in 2021 after a strange 2020 which featured many reimagined and virtual events. This Halloween there are plenty of ways to creep it real whether it’s pumpkin patches, haunted houses, or themed parties. One of our picks of the bunch, however, is going on a night out with the ghouls and goblins at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Ever wonder what it would be like to explore Lincoln Park Zoo after the gates close? Here’s your chance. “Leave the kids at home and head to the zoo for Adults Night Out: The Great Pumpkin Glow,” the zoo wrote on their website.
“Guests will enjoy unique animal chats, educational entertainment, a live DJ, and multiple bars throughout the zoo at this after-hours event. No kids. No crowds. Strolling among wildlife with a beer, cider, hard seltzer, or glass of wine in hand.”
In addition to the nocturnal animal, activity there will be a haunted trail, a pumpkin walk, lawn games, themed food, complimentary face painting, and cash bars, amongst plenty of other unique after-hours fun.
Tickets to The Great Pumpkin Glow range can now be bought through eventbrite.com. Prices range from $15–25 depending on whether guests purchase Super Early Bird or Early Bird tickets.
