Whether you’re a “dinosaur geek” or you’re just trying to pass time, mark your calendar for the this fun, exciting event at the Denver Zoo.

Animal and dinosaur-shaped sculptures made out of artificial pumpkins are set up inside the zoo to celebrate DINOS! After Dark and Boo At The Zoo.The sculptures are stunning during the day, but when they really stand out is at night. The grooves of the carvings are wired with lights to give the illusion of patterns and textures.

DINOS! After Dark runs throughout October. Adult-only nights are every Thursday and family-friendly nights are on Fridays and Saturdays. 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Family nights will have pumpkin carving demonstrations, scavenger hunts and a cultural performance. (live fire show.)

Pricing for non-members is $17 adult (ages 12-64); $14 senior; $12 children (ages 3-11); Ages 2 and under free.

Pricing for members is $11 adult; $9 senior; $7 children; ages 2 and under free.

Additional information: On October 27 & 28, there will be candy opportunities in addition to the nightly activities!
