|Horton Hears a Who at Knoxville Zoo
|June 16, 2009 -
Going to the movies becomes an
adventure with the debut of Zoovies presented by Fowler’s
Furniture at Knoxville Zoo!
On Friday, June 26, the zoo will
screen the Dr. Seuss favorite Horton Hears a Who. This
family favorite features Jim Carrey as the voice of Horton the
Elephant as he struggles to protect a microscopic community
from his neighbors.
Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and the
movie begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Clayton Family Kids Cove
tent. In addition to some wild time to play in Kids Cove,
Zoovie-goers will also get to meet some zoo animals and take
a carousel ride on the “Fuzzy-Go-Round”. (Additional charge
for carousel rides.)
Fowler’s Furniture is providing one family the chance to be
the evening’s VIPs with the Fowler’s Furniture Front Row
Family contest. The lucky winners will receive free admission

recliners reserved just for them. You can register to win in
