Zoo Cruise Car Show

June 20, 2020

Join us for our Zoo Cruisin' Car Show event!

After an escorted cruise through Salina and out to the Zoo, we'll have BBQ, ice-cold beers (and non alcoholic beverages), plus you'll be movin' and groovin' to the tunes of King Midas & the Mufflers, playing hits from the 50s - 70s on the Restaurant Patio!

Also...Last year we were pleasantly surprised by the enormous influx of same-day event ticket sales! We have received the message loud and clear, Salina, and we're heeding the call! This year we will be fully stocked with food and ice-cold beer with NO WAIT TIME!
