Cold Case

Normally, a trip to the zoo during summer means sweating and watching animals in heat. Not that kind of heat; just literal, stifling heat.

By Saturday, July 21, even the zookeepers will have had enough and proclaim it Winter in July. They’re trucking in more than 20 tons of snow to cool down the entire animal kingdom, and, yes, visitors can partake in the chilling out, too. Expect snowball throwing and water play areas for the little ones. Even four-legged, furry, and feathered zoo residents will enjoy the snowfall and icy treats. Radio Disney will provide music, games, and prizes.
