TXU Energy Presents Cool Nights: End of Summer Luau

This is the last Cool Nights of the summer, and we’re celebrating with an End-of-Summer Luau! We will have luau-themed activities like limbo contests and coconut bowling, an airbrush artist and Hawaiian-themed arts and crafts. This week’s special Meet the Keeper Talks include a chat at tigers at 6 p.m. and at flamingos at 6:30 p.m.

As a special treat this week, guests can enjoy FREE Carousel rides and FREE ice cream beginning at 5 p.m., courtesy of TXU Energy.

As always, all Cool Nights activities begin at 5 p.m. and are included in your Zoo admission and FREE for Zoo Members.
