Wilma and her cheerleader friends at a Bear Down Friday event in 2006

ZonaZoo is having a "welcome to the Zoo" event today.

Popularly know as Power Hour, the event is a preview for the weekly Bear Down Fridays pep rallies, said Paige Holmes, a ZonaZoo Crew programming director.

If you come to Main Gate Square on University Blvd tonight beginning at 6 p.m., you can learn about ZonaZoo traditions like the fight songs, cheers and jeers.

"It is a fun event for all ages -- loud music and lots of spirit! Cheer and mascots will be in attendance to help out with pumping up the crowd," Holmes said in an email.
