Reid Park Zoo Summer Safari Nights. Thank goodness for this summer tradition at the zoo.

Meerkats, squirrel monkeys, giant anteaters, African goats and aldabra tortoises will abound! OnesAll Band will provide a soundtrack of funk and rock music; Ready, Set, Rec will supply the games; and the zoo will provide the food and drink specials. 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 10.
