Pumpkin Nights at the Bronx Zoo is fall at its best.

In addition to Pumpkin Nights, the Bronx Zoo will continue the tradition of Boo at the Zoo, which will return on Saturdays and Sundays, September 30th through October 29th,  plus Monday, October 9th. Tickets for Boo at the Zoo go on sale August 29th at BronxZoo.com.
