Three Generations, One Great Tradition

For the past 50 years, the Karr family has been meeting at Lincoln Park Zoo each Thanksgiving morning. It’s an amazing tradition, though the origin is hardly grand.

“My wife was cooking the meal, our kids were underfoot and she wanted them out of the house,” says Arnold Karr when asked how this ritual began a half century ago, when the young family lived in Chicago. “So I took them over to Lincoln Park Zoo.”

Last Thursday, Arnold and Pat Karr hosted 17 descendents for their Thanksgiving zoo trip.
