Squishing of the Squash at the Oregon Zoo

Squishing of the Squash at the Oregon Zoo

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

The Oregon Zoo’s annual Squishing of the Squash, in which some of the world's largest land animals demolish some of the area’s largest pumpkins, will be held Friday, Oct. 18, at 11 a.m.

The Squishing of the Squash is a precursor to the zoo’s Howloween celebration taking place the following weekends. Events on October 19, 20, 26 and 27 will include a fun scavenger hunt that directs trick-or-treaters to easily accessible activity stations throughout the zoo where they can collect candy and prizes and learn about wildlife.

Throughout the weekend, visitors can also watch the zoo’s enrichment team and keepers provide animals with pumpkins and other holiday-themed treats.
