Nashville Zoo Hosts Seven Nights of Ford Motor Company’s Ghouls at Grassmere
Singing pumpkins, dancing witches and three tons of candy await you at Ford Motor Company Fund’s Ghouls at Grassmere. The Halloween celebration that transforms the Zoo into a magical destination for kids of all ages is set for a seven night run, Oct. 17 - 19 and 23 - 26.
Ghouls at Grassmere offers a safe and exciting Halloween experience for families with kids under age 12.

Special activities for 2014 include:
- Nick Jr.’s Peppa Pig™ will be on-hand the first weekend (Oct. 17-19) for a special meet-and-greet with fans.
- A new vortex experience has been added to Festival Field that will test guests’ senses as they make their way through the optical illusion.
- Additions to the Haunted Hayride include new animal character scenes and several dinosaurs from last spring’s DinoTrek making one final appearance before leaving the Zoo.
