Cool Off at the Zoo on Friday Night

Summer Safari Friday Nights 2018 continues at Reid Park Zoo. The program runs 6-8 p.m. every Friday until Aug. 3. Visit the Zoo during cooler evening temperatures, and enjoy the added benefits of live music, family-friendly animal features, and food and drink specials.

The night features face painting, glitter tattoos, enrichment stations, the carousel, animal encounters, and more. Regular admission applies, but some activities require an additional fee. Friday's theme will be "Earth’s Eco-Engineers," featuring armadillos, ferrets, alligators, anteaters, elephants, and meerkats.

In celebration of Father’s Day, all dads will receive free entry with paid child admission.
