Boo at the Zoo | October 16 – 30

Bring your little ghouls and goblins for a non-scary, kid-friendly Halloween experience at the Saint Louis Zoo.  Children are encouraged to wear costumes. There’s so much to enjoy including:  the herpetarium, children’s zoo, shows, rides, storytelling, 4D Theater, game area, painting pumpkins, photos and more. While this is not a trick-or treating experience, kids under 12 will receive a bag of treats when leaving.

Six Flags Fright Fest | through October 28

Six Flags has transformed into a halloween theme park for the month of October. The park is wholesome family fun during the day, but beware at night when there is nowhere to hide as haunted houses and scare zones are all throughout the park.

Halloween Nights at Grant’s Farm | through October 28

Enjoy the season with a one-of-a-kind celebration, featuring themed shows, a Live Music in the Bauernhof courtyard, and themed Deer Park rides with Halloween lights!

The Great Go! St. Louis Halloween Race | October 21

The Great GO! St. Louis Halloween Race is host to a half marathon, 10K, 5K and 1-mile fun run – with a special Halloween twist!  The Halloween fun starts with the Trick-or-Treat 5K! The 5K course will be lined with not only your usual water stops but also candy stops for you to trick or treat along the way! The 10K and half marathon courses have some added adventure as well! As you run through downtown St. Louis you will have to watch out for the Zombie Zone and you might even see the Ghostbusters in action! The fun doesn’t end when the race is over! Get your  top of the line finisher’s medal, and head over to the Trick-or-Treat Village to fill up on candy and treats from local business and organizations. For the over-21 crowd, Schlafly will be on site to help you enjoy a post race brew.
