Jungle Run II Car Show at Lee Richardson Zoo

Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo is revving up for an action-packed day at the zoo July 9th, 2016 with Jungle Run II. Last year, after more than a twenty-year absence, the Jungle Run was brought back to the West Green of beautiful Lee Richardson Zoo. It was so well received that we are doing it again and have added more awards, a scavenger hunt, rubber duck races and more. This will be a funtastic day at the zoo for the whole family with train rides, music, great food and plenty to see and do. Car show registration is from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. with the show running until 2 p.m. when awards will be given out. Pre-registration is just $25 or $30 the day of the show. Dash plaques and goodie bags go to the first 75 entries. For more details or registration forms, contact Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo: 620-276-6243, stop by the Finnup Center, online at or email Proceeds will go toward a new primate exhibit at Lee Richardson Zoo.

Also that day, the Finney County Historical Museum will be hosting their 7th annual Flea Market Festival of Antiques, Collectibles, Art & Crafts inside the zoo starting at 8 a.m. Extra parking will be available at the fairgrounds with free shuttle transportation running to and from the zoo during the events.
