Who doesn't LOVE October???
This year we are having a Family Friendly, Spooky Shindig here at the Zoo on Sunday, October 30th. Why not on Halloween you may ask? Well, you will all be busy trick-or-treating after school I'm sure...plus, Sunday is when most people are able to be out and about doing fun things, and we want EVERYONE to come! Yayyyyyyy!
There are SO many things packed into this night you won't even believe it!! Here is the itinerary:
Ok, so the spooky, silly excitement will start at 5pm and last until 10pm, and admission is the same ($5 for everyone over 3 years old). But remember your COSTUMES because when you first come in we will snap a picture of you, post it to our facebook pages, and let our fans vote for the best one!
1st place: LIFETIME membership to the zoo
2nd place: 1 YEAR membership to the zoo
3rd place: 6 MONTH membership to the zoo
***Guidleines: Please make sure the costume is "rated PG"...let's keep it family friendly***
Our alligator enclosure will be finished!! We will have everything done by the end of this month, and will be adding water to test for leaks. PLUS, you will have the opportunity to name our "new gator of unknown size and origin" (haha...we don't have it yet). Pick a good name, drop it in the bowl (or hat...or bucket...or box...we don't know yet) and the winner will receive not only their name on the Gator's cage tag, but ALSO a 1-year membership to the zoo!
We will ALSO working on getting some sort of food truck to come out for the evening...possibly Dogzilla, Kogi, Burnt Truck or Lime Truck.
We will have games going on in the party rooms...most likely a coloring contest, scavenger hunt, an 18 and older WORM -eating contest, and bobbing for....something. Speaking of games...there will also be a raffle for a chance to win:
A new pet plus a complete starter kit!
A video camera!
A LIFETIME membership to the zoo!
Furthermore...we will be having a live hatching snake eggs via YouTube for our fans who can't be here!
Our fearless leaders are trying to get Joel from Forever Wild to come back with some crazy critters of his own...and of course we will have our own "shop celebrities", such as Twinkie (world's largest snake) and Frank, the asian water monitor and Disney Channel star.
In addition...for the month of October, our hands-on area will include a tarantula and a scorpion! Ahhhhhhh!
.....and OF COURSE....There will be lots and lots of CANDY!!!
Whew!! thats's a LOT of awesomeness happening in one evening! We hope you all can come out and join us...wear your best costume, bring your bravery, test your skills, and get ready for some crazy reptililian FUN!!!!!!
See you there!
