Everyone's invited to the El Paso Zoo's BUGFEST 2007

Everyone's invited to the El Paso Zoo's BUGFEST 2007It's our annual Back-to-School Bugfest with fun & games for the whole family. We're breaking out the bugs and letting you see them UP CLOSE at the best place to bug out before school starts - The El Paso Zoo!

Bring your camera for pictures with Insect Man. Then, stop by to see the huge, hissing Madagascar Cockroaches or the Emperor Scorpions, even some squirmy worms. Kids can get up-close to tarantulas and other spiders.

Everyone's invited to the El Paso Zoo's BUGFEST 2007There will be the all-time favorite "Bug Races," along with a life-size maze for your kids to explore on their own…like little bugs! (Shhh, we have secretly disguised educational activities for your children as great, fun experiences!)
