Looking for an excuse to get outdoors? Well, then the Chihuahuan Desert Fiesta is just the excuse you need!
The El Paso Zoo along with the Franklin Mountains State Park is hosting the 18th Annual Chihuahuan Desert which, for the second year in a row, will be a two-day event.
The event is set to take place Saturday, September 24th, and Sunday, September 25th.
Day one of the events will be held at the El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Day two will be held at Franklin Mountains State Park’s Tom Mays Unit.
Day two will include a guided hike tour which will be led by El Pasoan and Education and Volunteer Manager for Frontera Land Alliance Wendy Diaz.
