Throughout October, Denver Zoo will transform into a festive fall wonderland, with pumpkin sculptures, scarecrows and more than 4,000 animals providing the backdrop for three seasonal events for all ages. Wild Fall at Denver Zoo includes two all-new events — Taps & Tails, an adults-only bier hall featuring Colorado’s best breweries and live entertainment, and Enchanted Hollows, an eerie nighttime experience that will transport guests to a world of Halloween story and lore.
