is back again, and the organization welcomes people to the Coolest Backyard Bash
. “We’re gearing it toward the young-adult audience,” says Marketing Manager Lauren St. Pierre. “It’s hot outside in the summer, but we want people to enjoy the cooler weather and fun activities to advance the experience here.” Partake in games fit for even the swankiest backyard parties, including giant Jenga, Connect Four and cornhole. Folks can also groove to a live band as well as purchase beer and snacks. Also, look forward to an up-close experience with the animals.

Thanks to TXU Energy, the Houston Zoo is once again staying open late, so you can enjoy the animals in the cooler evening weather. Join us for Cool Nights every Friday evening from June 16 through August 11. From 5 to 8 p.m. guests can enjoy added music and fun family activities that are sure to entertain kids and adults alike!
The summer days may be hot, but the Houston Zoo has the most refreshing afternoons in town.
