I’m so excited for this Friday, September 13th off on your calendar and plan to attend the Abilene Zoo’s “Zoobilation” event. It’s such a fantastic way to support not only one of Abilene’s most popular attractions, but also those lively creatures that inhabit it. This annual party and fundraising festivity allows you to experience the Zoo after hours, and give you the opportunity to jam out with Abilene’s own Free Ride as well as participate in live and silent auctions. All proceeds benefit the giraffe exhibit renovations. The festivities start at 6 pm and the cost is $65 a person. Advance purchase is required, so call 325-676-6085 to get your tickets today.

The giraffes at the Abilene Zoo are my favorite co-workers on the days I take journalists around Abilene! Can you spot the one in this picture? Never mind what the Instagram filter did to my eye...
