Halloween Fun

Boo at the Zoo

Break out your best costume and spend the day trick or treating at the Kansas City Zoo. Kids will also love the Halloween-themed activities that offer plenty of treats—no tricks here! Be sure to catch the pumpkin fun as zoo residents do a little pumpkin carving of their own.

Day of the Dead at the Nelson

While it's not exactly a Halloween activity, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art hosts Dia De Los Muertos each year. The lively festival celebrates Mexican art and culture, including an altar installation, art activities, live music entertainment and Mexican food.

Halloween Haunt at Worlds of Fun

Ghosts, ghouls and other creatures of the night roam freely through Worlds of Fun during Halloween Haunt, which showcases the scarier side of the amusement park. Visit during the day for kid-friendly Halloween attractions and shows. The Haunt runs inside the park weekends from September through Halloween.
