Santa returns to the El Paso Zoo this weekend

Officials with the El Paso Zoo are once again inviting families to a flurry of festive fun as Santa Claus makes a special visit for the Santa at the Zoo event this weekend.

Santa at the Zoo runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, December 7 and 8.

“The fun-filled day includes snow from the North Pole for guests to enjoy and play in,” zoo officials shared via a news release.

Zookeepers will be giving some of the animals holiday gifts and other seasonal enrichment items that provide mental and physical stimulation.

Santa Claus will be available for photographs, and visitors will also have an opportunity to create holiday arts and crafts, listen to live entertainment, watch holiday movies and more.
