Take the Kids to the World’s Largest Halloween Party at the Zoo October 6
Don’t the holidays make your house feel more like a zoo than a home? This year, you can actually take your little wild things to the Louisville Zoo for the world’s largest Halloween party. And even though this event is designed for kids, parents are going to be delighted with the stuff they see, too.
World’s Largest Halloween Party
If you think that Halloween should be sweet and not scary, this is the party for you. The Halloween party at the zoo is designed for children 11 and under who want to be enchanted, not scared. The zoo will become a storybook during Halloween, with some of their favorite characters come to life. And of course, the sweetest part of all: kids can trick-or-treat here.
Stop in Pirates Cove before you take your little princess to see other princesses at the zoo. Navigate your way through the huge hay maze before you get dazzled by hundreds of Jack o’ lanterns. Of course, you won’t be alone here. Some of the zoo’s late-night animals will be out to enjoy the party as well. You could see the giraffes, polar bears, wolves, jaguars and other fan favorites. The HerpAquarium will be open as well, so if you do want a little bit of the creepy and the crawly you can find it here.
Go to the zoo from 5 to 8:30 pm for the Halloween party at 1100 Trevilian Way. That’s right next to the Audubon Park neighborhood. Take a walk on the wild side this October, and take a closer look at the neighborhood right next to the zoo.
Visit the Wildlife of Audubon Park
Audubon Park is surrounded by the Louisville Zoo, the Audubon Park Country Club and the Louisville Nature Center. It's a neighborhood surrounded by green, and there's lots of green inside this community, too. The homes, many of which are styled after turn-of-the-century designs, sit on big lawns on streets that are named after birds. The neighborhood is full of Colonial Revivals, Tudor Revivals, bungalows and Craftsman-style homes. Lots of the homes here have garages and basements to give families plenty of room. A little extra space never hurts.
The entire neighborhood of Audubon Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The people who live here have a lot to be proud of, and they know it. There's a strong sense of community here, and neighborhood-wide gatherings for everyone to enjoy. Like the street names suggest, Audubon Park is home to lots of different birds. Visit this October, and you may be inspired to make your own history here.
