Thanks to TXU Energy, the Houston Zoo is once again staying open late, until 8:30 p.m., so you can enjoy the animals in the cooler evening weather. Join us for Cool Nights every Friday evening from June 27 through August 22. From 5 to 8 p.m. guests can enjoy added music and kid-friendly activities that are sure to entertain kids and adults alike! All activities are included in Zoo admission.
July 25: Holidays in ZOO-ly
Candy canes, reindeer, lights and Santa beards? Sounds like Holidays in Zoo-ly! If you can’t wait any longer for the holiday season, visit the Houston Zoo on July 25 for lots of fun holiday-themed activities such as Pin the Nose on Rudolph, Penguin Shuffle and ornament decorating. You can also embark on a scavenger hunt to find holiday items throughout the Zoo and take a few photos at our photo booth.
Guests will enjoy icy-cool entertainment including ice sculpture carving presentations by Reverend Butter and special Meet the Keeper Talks with the orangutans and cassowary. Be sure to join us this week as we impatiently await the most wonderful time of the year!
