Abilene Zoo’s 50th Anniversary Celebration to Take Place in July

Abilene Zoo’s 50th Anniversary

Celebrating 50 Years!

The Abilene Zoo’s 50th Anniversary is this year, and on July 9, the zoo will hold a celebration festival for the occasion that will feature all-day performances starting at 10am. Gather at the zoo pavilion across from the train station to watch live bands and dancers perform in honor of the zoo’s anniversary.

The festival will take place all day at the zoo and will also offer cupcakes. Admission for children 12 and under will be dropped to 10 cents the day of the celebration. The celebration is being organized by the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council, the Texas Commission of the Arts, and the City of Abilene.

The Abilene Zoo is one of the most popular places in Abilene and has over 1,000 animals, 250 species, a variety of exhibits, and the Adventure Center, where the zoo holds educational programs for children. The zoo is an important part of the Abilene community; in 2006, Abilene raised over $1 million to make improvements to the zoo.

All of us at Hanner Chevrolet are just a short drive from Abilene, TX and will be going to the event! We cannot wait to go and see all the amazing animals at the zoo.
