Kingdom Zoo hosts Black Friday specials

The Kingdom Zoo: Wildlife Center, 1605 Strickland in Orange, is having a special “Black Friday” merchandise sale and BBQ  Friday from 9 a.m. till 2 p.m.

“If there is an animal-loving kid in your life you can get unique items you will not find in stores here and at great prices. We have lots of cool toys, jewelry, shirts and much more,” said Lisa Moore.

There will also be special “The Wildlife Journalist” framed wildlife photography prints available for the first time and the new book “Field Guide to the Wild Cats of Texas” written by Chester Moore.

“We will also have BBQ links and boudain for sale for $5 donation for a link, chips and drink. Drop by and pick up or call 409-920-2062 and reserve a bunch in advance of your family or work crew,” Lisa said.

“You can get a sneak peak at our center and meet a few animals as we’ll have two of our rooms open for free viewing.”

All funds benefit Kingdom Zoo’s ministry outreach including the “Wild Wishes” program that grants exotic animal encounters to children who have a terminal illness or have lost a parent or sibling.
