El Paso Zoo’s Last Zoofari Nites of Summer to Extend Bug Fest Fun
Get ready for another early evening zoo adventure. They're called Zoofari Nites, and the final one of the summer is this Saturday, August 10.
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 this is the zoo event for you. Instead of closing at 5 p.m. as it normally does, the zoo will stay open until 8:30 p.m.
This weekend is Bug Fest at the zoo, and Zoofari Nites will supersize Saturday's creepy-crawly fun into the evening. That means more time to learn about and interact with different bugs from all over the world – and maybe even eat some, too.
Some of what will happen after hours includes a later than usual Wings of the World bird show, an evening giraffe feeding, additional animal presentations, live entertainment, and free kids activities.The splash pad, carousel, and playground stay open into the evening too.
