Love animals, Halloween, beer? You’ll freak for this Gateway event

Is your spirit animal something that resides in the Columbus Zoo? Or is it a pint of beer with a cold bead of sweat running down the side? Or is it Wednesday Adams?

If you selected any or all of these, Boo! with the Zoo at the Gateway plaza is the event for you.

With help from The District PourHouse (World of Beer’s successor), Jackie O’s Brewery, and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, guests can enjoy a happy hour/beer tasting while Zoo handlers rotate select animals out for your meeting and greeting pleasure.


There will also be sweet and savory snacks to fill your belly for hibernation.

The booze and animal festivities will conclude with an outdoor screening of “The Addams Family.”

Boo! with the Zoo will be Wednesday, October 17 from 5:30- 7:30pm.

Note: You do not have to be 21 to attend, JUST to drink alcohol… so bring the entire family, young and old!
