ZooFari Nites return for the Summer at El Paso Zoo

The El Paso Zoo is once again giving visitors a chance to see what zoo animals do after hours by extending evening hours for Zoofari Nites during the summer.

“Evening hours not only offer fun, but they also give families another outing option during cooler evening hours,” zoo officials shared via a Thursday morning news release.

The zoo will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on June 22, July 13 and August 10.

As part of Zoofari Nites, there will be live music including performances, various zoo activities including animal encounters, and a special evening giraffe feeding.

In addition, all attractions will be open for guests, including the Hunt Family Desert Spring and Foster Tree House Playground.

The Zoofari Nites event on June 22 features a video game theme that includes video game arts and crafts, a mini video game arcade inside the Wildlife Amphitheatre, and themed animal enrichments.
