Did you know that June is Zoo and Aquarium month? Well, it is! What better way to celebrate than to a visit to the zoo? Yes, it's hella hot, but the zoo has a great way for you to beat the heat and still enjoy the animals plus lots of other activities: Zoofari Nites!

Zoofari Nites at the El Paso Zoo is back! It's a time where for one Saturday a month you can enjoy the zoo well into the evening hours. The extended evening hours are until 8:30 p.m.and will take place on June 22, July 13 and August 10th.

June 22 kicks off Zoofari Nite with a video game theme! El Paso favorite Dusty Low will take the stage in the Asia plaza from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Stop by the Wildlife Amphitheater for a "Wild Experience" that includes crafts, live music and special video game themed animal treats!

If you've never experienced the zoo after hours, I highly recommend you do so! It's a great way to beat the El Paso heat and a great activity for both kids and adults! It's also a great opportunity for some awesome selfies!
