New Zoo Carousel Preview
Today is one of the Hattiesburg Zoological Society's big fundraiser of the year--Zoo Blues! The Society--a non-profit that's purpose is to raise money for the zoo--recently purchased the carousel the zoo had been leasing and paid to move it inside the zoo and refurbish it in more of a "zoo appropriate" motif, and today will be the ribbon cutting for the new carousel (along with other new attractions at the zoo).
Half of the horses have been transformed into zebras, and in the coming months more zoo animals will replace other horses.
Since James serves on the HZS Executive Board, he and Rebekah got a sneak peek at the carousel on a chilly morning at the zoo this week.
