Snow Day

Snow in July?? In Houston?? Only at the Houston Zoo! Temperatures may be in the 100s, but grab your mittens and come to the Zoo for Snow Day on Saturday, July 27 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and join all the chilly fun thanks to TXU Energy and Sunny 99.1. We’ll have a separate snow area for our littlest visitors to explore, along with thousands of pounds of snow for the not-so-little kids. While you’re here, pick up a TXU Energy fan at their booth in the Front Plaza and participate in their scavenger hunt to receive a FREE sno cone! All of these activities are included in your Zoo admission and are FREE for Members.
