As summer slips away and fall fills the air we find ourselves sometimes struggling to find fun things to replace the summer activities we so loved.
Fun at the zoo does not have to end when summer does. The Lincoln Park Zoo has fall fun for all ages that you won’t want to miss.
This year is the 5th annual Fall Fest at the Lincoln Park Zoo, right here in Chicago. Fall fest runs every Friday, Saturday & Sunday starting September 27 and running until October 27 from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
Entry is free but some of the attractions do require tickets such as the carousel, bounce house, face painting, ferris wheel, corn maze, train ride, obstacle course and more. The tickets are $3 for one, $27 for 10 or $51 for 20.
Walking through the zoo you will hear some musical entertainment, get to watch some professional pumpkin carvers work their skills, enjoy a pumpkin patch, see all the fun fall themes for the animals and more. There will be a giant pumpkin you can take pictures with, live chats and animal viewings, holiday snacks available and you can enter the edible garden.
Adults Night Out
The Great Pumpkin Glow will be held on Thursday October 24 from 6:30-10:00pm. This event is for anyone 18 years and older. You do need to purchase tickets for this and you can do so online for $15 or if it does not sell out you can purchase at the door for $20. During this event you will be able to stroll the exhibits after hours and enjoy beer or wine from the cash bars that will be set up. Unique animals chats will take place as well as entertainment and a corn maze for you to enjoy. IDs will be required to enter and this event will take place rain or shine.
The Spooky Zoo event is held on Saturday, October 26 and is a well known community event as it attracts more than 25,000 people each year, many of which come from underserved communities right here in Chicago. This is a free and safe alternative for all to trick-or-treat at the zoo. Costumes are not required but can be worn as many use this as their trick-or-treat event for the year.
