The joyful production brought each year to the Long Center for the Performing Arts is a family favorite for the start of the New Year, and a special time to appreciate the talents of dancers and guest artists right here in Lafayette. Special memories are created on this magical night of dancing and artistic performances. Have you ever howled with the wolves?  You can!  This Saturday, January 5, at 7:30pm join the wolves as they howl the night away at the Wolf Park Howl Night.  This is a night that features a lecture on wolf communication, the opportunity to see some of the staff enter the enclosure and interact with the wolves of their main pack, and the chance to howl with the wolves.  Wolf Park also features bison, coyotes, foxes and more!
