NORFOLK, VA – Join the Virginia Zoo for a night the whole family will roar about! Bring the kiddos or your friends to Zoovies, an outdoor movie night under the stars on the Zoo’s Event Field. On October 5, the Disney hit “The Lion King” will be shown to celebrate our littlest lion, Emery’s first birthday.
Emery was born on October 28, 2017 to parents Zola and Mramba in the Zoo’s Africa – Okavango Delta. Before the movie, watch a special video recapping Emery’s first year where attendees will hear from his Keepers about what he’s been up to. No birthday celebration would be complete without a surprise, so the first 100 children will receive a fun birthday favor!
