Get in the holiday spirit with your friends and family at the Zoo !

The Red River Zoo is making Holiday Nights accessible to all by offering free admission this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. nightly!

We’ll be accepting free will donations to help support the Zoo’s winter operations, but it’s most important to us that we have the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with our friends, supporters, and family in the community.

Holiday Nights includes: Free admission, free carousel rides, animal encounters, zookeeper talks, Spot the Elf Scavenger Hunt, sledding, a festive campfire, and more!

It’s the final weekend for Holiday Nights 2018! We’ll be drawing for Scavenger Hunt prizes on December 23rd. You need not be present to win.

The Elf on a Shelf will be moving to a new spot throughout the Zoo each night. Spot the elf and enter to win one of our fabulous prizes!
