Pick The Perfect Pumpkin At This Illinois Zoo’s FREE Fall Festival
It's time to take a trip to Lincoln Park Zoo for their fall festival happening all October long. Did you hear? It's absolutely free admission, too!
Fall is my favorite season ever. I was just talking with a friend about how many events pop up in the Midwest when fall arrives. From fall markets, to apple orchards, to fun fall craft shows, Illinois is a pretty sweet place to live!
Come on party animals, you can enjoy free entertainment, a drag story time, watch professional pumpkin carvers, and visit the most beautiful animals at this year's fall festival at Lincoln Park Zoo!
The Fall Fest opened on September 30th and will close on October 30th, 2022. Select your dates to pre-register to get into the festival here.
"This free, family-friendly celebration brings harvest-time fun to the heart of Chicago each year from September–October. This year’s festival features ticketed attractions throughout the zoo, including the Ferris wheel, harvest maze, pumpkin walk, super-sized slide, racecar ride, and more." - LPZ
There is a catch, though. Not everything is free, remember that.
If you want to dive into all the wonderful activities they will have available, you can purchase tickets for the Endangered Species Carousel, Ferris Wheel, Fun Slide, a train adventure, racecar ride, Pumpkin Walk, Harvest Maze and a Pumpkin Patch Pop-up here.
You might be able to catch one of the animals playing with pumpkins, too!
This fall festival is for everybody in your family!
"Fall Fest attraction tickets cost $4 for one ticket, $36 for 10 tickets, and $69 for 20 tickets. Tickets are available at zoo ticket counters."
