The two-day event features a festival-style environment with live entertainment, rides, games, inflatables, animal presentations, and tasty treats. The family friendly event also features a rock climbing wall and the Jo Don Petting Zoo where guests can touch and feed animals as well as ride ponies and camels. Representatives from the City of Montgomery Fire and Police departments will be on site with a fire truck, rescue boat, and smokehouse tower for guests to view up close. Started in 1976 to raise funds to support capital improvement projects, Zoo Weekend is a cherished tradition in the River Region. Throughout the years, proceeds from this event have supported the construction of new habitats for African elephants, American alligators, and North American river otters. The event also serves as a membership drive for the zoo with discounted annual membership rates that are too good to pass up.
