Princess And The Frog Tea Party Is Becoming An Ellen Trout Zoo Tradition

This event started in 2010, and will be the 12th annual tea party. Some of the young people that attended this event in their first year or so could be back now with their own kids.

Even during Covid, they held the event by making it a scavenger hunt in 2021. This kind of tradition is just one of the many reasons to love Lufkin.
