From Halloween activities to amazing animals and pumpkins galore, ZooBoo presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers is always the place to be on the weekends in October!
With mild temperatures, active animals and colorful foliage all around, fall is already a wonderful time to plan a Zoo visit. Add in all the extra Halloween activities for an unforgettable family experience.
The Bicentennial Pavilion is home to a whimsical village with adorable cats and fancy rats, a friendly witch and a crafty Pumpkin School where fun is in season! Thrills and fun are hiding around every corner inside the Candy Corn Factory Mirror Maze. Guests can also visit the not-so-scary creatures in Jack’s Barn presented by State Farm or the cats being fostered in Bewitching Bites by our friendly witch. Through the Zoo’s partnership with the Humane Society of Indianapolis, guests can learn about adopting these adorable animals after Halloween. And, don’t forget to explore the friendly witch’s carnivorous plant, hat and magic wand collections! Little witches and goblins can make a craft at the Pumpkin School. Plus, the dance party is always going with Halloween hits from Patch Radio and the fall favorite, Pumpkin Bowling!

Welcome Our New Baby Dolphin
We’re excited to welcome our newest Atlantic bottlenose dolphin addition, a healthy boy born to mother Kalei (kuh-LAY). The calf weighed 36 pounds at birth on Aug. 27. The new calf is also the grandson of Nova, who is the matriarch of the dolphin pod.
Kalei is an attentive mother and the calf is nursing well. Our Marine Mammal staff is monitoring mom and baby 24/7 and will continue to do so for several weeks. The vet staff conducted important medical checks and continues to monitor the calf and mom daily. Kalei’s food intake of high-fat fish increased after the baby arrived to help with extra needs with nursing.
Though it will be a while before mother and calf can be seen, guests can still view the rest of our pod from the underwater viewing dome in the St. Vincent Dolphin Pavilion. The calf and the other members of our Atlantic bottlenose dolphin pod are ambassadors to their counterparts in the wild. The dolphin presentation in the Dolphin Pavilion sheds light on the health of the waters where dolphins live in the wild and what we can do here in Indiana to make their world a healthier place. The presentation features local families and the steps they take each day to avoid single-use plastics to help ensure healthy oceans free of plastic that put dolphins and other sea animals at risk.
