Event Details

A gaggle of your favorite local news media personalities is headed to the Houston Zoo and we hope you will join them.

The annual TXU Energy Houston Turkey Calling Contest returns to the Houston Zoo on Saturday, Nov. 14. Local TV, radio and print personalities will be on hand to flap their elbows and belt out their best turkey gobble. The TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot is the largest Thanksgiving footrace and it benefits more than 160,000 seniors and children that BakerRipley serves each year.

The media personality who delivers the best turkey call will be honored with a tree planting in the city and zoo guests will be invited to join the turkey call to win their own prizes.

The turkey calling contest kicks off at 10 a.m. at the Houston Zoo’s reflection pool.

The TXU Energy Houston Turkey Trot features competitive and fun 10K, 5K and wheelchair races as well as a kid’s play area, food and friendly visitors from our zoo.
