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!
