Do the zoo by day, and roast alive. Venture to the park after dark, and you'll save money and get in on numerous special activities rolled out just for Prowl and Play.

The zoo's summer-evening event, held 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 10, features a screening of Disney's "Teen Beach Movie," a magic show, "Critter Chats" with small animals and their handlers, and the chance to make sidewalk chalk art.

Other activities:
