Omaha - Looking for a family outing this holiday season?

"Christmas at the zoo is three family activities in one: dinner, holiday crafts and a picture with Santa," said Ryan Nelson, chairperson for the Young Alumni. "We have had an excellent response from the community with this event and have used the feedback we received to make it even better. We look forward to meeting you and your family."
The 6 p.m. event will feature a dinner catered by Valentino's in the Treetop Restaurant overlooking the Lied Jungle; crafts and goodies for children; and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Tickets cost $15 for adults, $5 for children age three to 10, and are free for children age two and under.
