Children’s Hospital patients, families attend ‘Dream Night’ at Knoxville Zoo

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Families of patients at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital got to enjoy the Knoxville Zoo all to themselves Friday night as part of “Dream Night.”

With no crowds, the kids got to visit all the animals and exhibits at no cost.

Since many of these children are unable to visit the zoo during normal hours, one mom said this was a great way for her family to spend time together.

“This was the one time we were able to come out and just be a family, be a normal life,” said Christy Letsinger.

About 900 children and their parents attended.
