Hippo Holiday Sing-A-Long and Surprise With Gayla Peevey

It wouldn’t be the holidays without the Zoo’s annual Gayla Peevey “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” sing-a-long. And this year, Gayla’s singing her classic holiday hit live in-person and helping the Zoo unveil a big surprise (our lips are sealed). Born in Olahoma City, Gayla is most renowned for her 1953 recording of this classic holiday song. In addition to leading the sing-along, she will also share some of her childhood memories of Oklahoma City and talk about the song’s connection to the Zoo.

  • Refreshments, provided by Salt & Surrey catering, will be served while they last.
  • Fan-favorite Holiday HIppo T-Shirts will be available for purchase at the Zoo’s Safari Gift Ship in the Global Plaza dring the month of December.
  • Free for all ages. Zoo admission not required to participate. Limite seating; first come, first serve.
