When it comes to annual events in Abilene, the Abilene Zoo is a must-mention. They host three major events each year.
1. Wild Days in March: An interactive wildlife show where guests can get close to animals and meet the zoo's Animal Care Specialist.
2. Boo at the Zoo in October: Abilene's beloved Halloween tradition featuring live shows, a hay-bale maze, Pumpkin Chunkin', fall treats, animal encounters, and more.
3. Christmas Celebration: A festive escape with ice skating, stunning light displays, a professional ice sculpture show, live nativity scene, and a special visit from new animal friends associated with a certain sleigh-pulling tradition.
