**Unfortunately, with the rise of COVID 19 cases in, and surrounding, Reno County we have decided to cancel this year’s Prairie Nights "Mask"erade Party. Refunds will be available upon request. Thank you all for your support of the Hutchinson Zoo and we’ll be working to provide creative ways to continue engaging our community in these times of change and challenge.**

On Thursday, July 30th, we will host our “rescheduled” annual Prairie Nights with a twist! This year we will include a mask contest with prizes judged in several different categories. Food from Comfort & Joy and beer from Sandhills Brewing are included in the price of admission. Enjoy an evening outside at the Hutchinson Zoo,  tickets will be extremely limited to provide plenty of room for social distancing.
