UC ingot   Last year, more than 5,400 Bearcats enjoyed a fun-filled evening at the Cincinnati Zoo!

So this year, we're doing it again – but bigger and better! Join us from 4:30-9 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 7. Get your tickets ahead of time, so you don't have to "bear" the long lines! Go to for information.

Prizes for our scavenger hunts include a $100 gift card to the UC Bookstore and a four-person pass to the Great Wolf Lodge! You won't want to miss your chance at those prizes, plus movie tickets and lots of fun trinkets ...

But the main event will be the wonderful animals! We'll have two Cheetah Shows, random visits from some pretty interesting animals, plus several talks with the zoo animal keepers.

And, the UC Pep Band plus our own cheerleaders and Bearcat mascot will liven up the scene, along with four local bands.

Our photo booth will be bigger and better, including loads of props. And our Alumni Association will be back with their Proudly Cincinnati photo booth, along with printouts of your photos – on the spot.

Lucy the Bearcat will also be on hand to greet you, so DON'T MISS IT!

We'll see you at the zoo on Saturday, Sept. 7.
