Holiday Fest at the NEW Zoo Even if you don’t “Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”, consider visiting snow leopards, lions and giraffes at the NEW Zoo during Holiday Fest! Holiday Fest ’10 is scheduled for one fun-filled weekend so be certain to mark your calendars!
- Friday, December 17th
- Saturday, December 18th
- 5:00- 8:00pm
The zoo will open for extended hours on these dates and will feature festive lights and a candlelit, horse drawn wagon ride thru the Reforestation Camp trails (an additional $2 fee applies). Don’t miss Santa! The jolly ‘ole fellow will be on site each night in our new restaurant-have you been naughty or nice? Consider scooping up a Santa’s Snack Sampler and try some of tasty new menu items!
Holiday Fest is a fabulous time to visit the Zoo. As nighttime descends upon the facility, the zoo becomes a peaceful time to take in the beauty of the acreage and the animals who love the cooler weather. Our zoo critters are eager for your visit during this time of year.
