Ice Cream and Animals at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo

Producers Dairy Ice Cream Zoofari brings families out to the zoo for a night of fun and treats.

It was a slightly less hot August night than in past years when the Fresno Chaffee Zoo held its annual Producers Dairy Ice Cream Zoofari earlier this month. As usual, there were tons of different ice cream flavors, toppings and other treats at stations scattered throughout the zoo. On a typical summer night in Fresno, that’s a welcome sight.

It looked like the rainbow sherbet, red velvet and cookies and cream were pretty popular, but I really enjoyed the Death by Chocolate and salted caramel flavors myself. I also preferred the cone to the cup – except with the root beer float of course. Yes, it was a bit of a sugar overload.

It was fun to see Parker out there posing for photos along with the cheetahs and lions. Zoo events are such great events as they always include the volunteer docents to talk to folks about animal facts and conservation.

Enjoy the photos while I head to the gym to burn off some of those calories.
