The sun has been shying away as the leaves change colour and Halloween looms near. This fall, Granby Zoo is dressing up in lights and shades for Noctambule, a brand new activity taking place in the evenings. Celebrate autumn as a family and let the magic of a zoo at night enchant you!

A fun new trail that engages participants

Until October 29, discover the animals of Asia and the Dinozoo exhibition on the Noctambule trail. It’s a fascinating nighttime activity, in the dark, that has you following a trail that pays tribute to animals. You’ll meet biologists who will tell you about the nocturnal habits of the resident animals, some of which are endangered species. Continue on to Dinozoo, where the 21 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs are sure to give chills to the whole family. Take a 65-million-year trip back in time to the Prehistoric Age and marvel at these giant extinct creatures. Lights and sound effects set the mood along the way to create a unique magical atmosphere.

A zoo cloaked in colour

If you prefer to go to the zoo during the daytime, Granby Zoo welcomes visitors every weekend of October! It’s the perfect opportunity for one last family getaway before winter rolls in. About 15 presentations explaining the many secrets of the zoo’s residents will be given by zookeepers. And while you’re there, drop by the amusement park, where you can hop on the dozen-or-so rides at no extra cost. Have a go at the bumper cars, try out the small motorcycles and see things from above on the Ferris wheel for an afternoon of fun and laughs!

Animals love Halloween, too!

If you have a soft spot for animal photography, don’t forget a camera to capture this most entertaining show: on the last two weekends of October, the animals will be feasting on pumpkins – a picture-perfect sight you’ll want to hold onto!

Try a new spin on Halloween and autumn at the Granby Zoo. It’s fun both day and night!
