Get Set for Spooks at Night of the Living Zoo on October 26

Who says Halloween is just for the kids? The Smithsonian National Zoo is hosting its spooky Night of the Living Zoo event this Friday, October 26, and there is still time to take part in this adults-only bash. 

You’ll not only gain access to the zoo in the particularly creepy evening hours, but also plenty of craft beer, food trucks, and live entertainment will be on hand. Your general admission ticket includes access to the animal houses and two drink tickets, or you can go all out with a VIP ticket. The VIP experience includes an additional drink ticket, complimentary tastings from a few hot DC restaurants, a private dance floor, and more. And be sure to wear your best Halloween attire — the costume contest at the end of the night promises even more fun prizes. 

Night of the Living Zoo is Friday from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
