Santa Saturdays with Mr. and Mrs. Claws at the Little Rock Zoo

Dates: 12/5/2020 - 12/19/2020
Times: 11am - 1pm on December 5th, 12th, and 19th

Make sure to come see Mr. and Mrs. "Claws" in our Christmas Wonderland before Santa comes to your house!  They will be located in the Civitan Pavilion each Saturday of December before Christmas.  Because Santa is so busy this year, he sent his furry helpers to spread some cheer and warm you up with complimentary hot cocoa, while you snap a family photo.  

Big kids—little kids—they want to hear all your wishes so they can report to the big guy! You can take safe, socially-distanced pictures with your own cell phone.  Come visit them the first three Saturdays of December and see the animals enjoy special holiday engagement* and get in on the excitement of the holidays! Free hot chocolate, while supplies last!
