Get ready for an early evening adventure at the El Paso Zoo.

The first of three Zoo after Howlers is this Saturday, June 17. Instead of closing at 5 p.m. as it normally does, the zoo will stay open until 8:30 p.m.

Some of what happens after hours includes live entertainment, animal presentations, and a special evening giraffe feeding. All attractions, like the Hunt Family Desert Spring splash pad and Foster Tree House Playground, stay open into the evening.

If you’ve ever wondered what the animals do after hours, or if you just want to enjoy the zoo when its a tad cooler and there's more shade, then save the date.
