Santa Claus will be turning the wildest place in town into the merriest this weekend.

This Saturday, December 8, and Sunday, December 9, Santa will be at the El Paso Zoo, and he’s bringing fluffy snow, carolers, and special treats for the animals.

Not only can your kids frolic in the snow, they can pose for a pic with The Big Guy and even write him a Christmas wish list, which the zoo promises to mail directly to the North Pole (wink, wink).

Santa at the Zoo is free with zoo admission. All activities will take place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. both days.
