Join the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) as it celebrates Halloween season this year with a limited run of spooky family friendly events at Edinburgh Zoo 

From eerie tours of the zoo at dusk and Halloween themed animal displays, to fang-tastic breakfasts and special pumpkin carving sessions, there is something for everyone.  

Lindsay Ross, events and experiences manager at RZSS, said, “We are so excited to be offering a range of events this year for our visitors.  

Whether people want to come and carve a pumpkin for one of our amazing animals or visit the Autumn market full of local artisans, every visit will support our wildlife conservation charity continue its vital work around the world, protecting species and creating deeper connections for people and nature.”
