Young Leaders Family Social

Young Leaders Family Social 2016

June 15 at Hogle Zoo

Grab your lil' animals and join Young Leaders at Hogle Zoo for this year's summer family social. We'll have the whole zoo to ourselves! Enjoy a BBQ while hanging out with the lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!), riding the carousel, and getting up close and personal with the elephants during the pachyderm show. It'll be a night to roar about!
