Winter in July at Phoenix Zoo


The temperatures might be in the triple digits, but at Winter in July the Phoenix Zoo will look and feel like a winter wonderland. Guests can cool down in more than 50 tons of snow, splash in the wet and wild play areas and watch the animals enjoy icy summertime treats. A highlight is when Reba, the resident Asian elephant, enjoys a cool shower from the Phoenix Fire Department.

Details: 7-11 a.m. Saturday, July 16. Phoenix Zoo, 455 N. Galvin Pkwy., Phoenix. $20 for ages 14 and up, $14 for ages 3-13, free for ages 2 and younger. 602-286-3800,
