A Magical Drive – Thru at the Zoo

May 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Join us on Saturday, May 30 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for a Magical Drive-Thru in the Zoo parking lot!

Drive through the Zoo parking lot to meet some smaller Zoo animal residents, a collection of heroes and princesses from Fairytale Princess Visits, and even the Zoo mascot – all from a safe distance. Patrons will remain in their vehicles at all times. Event staff will be wearing masks and we encourage guests to wear masks as well.

Please bring a new, unused toy to donate to Beverly’s Birthdays, an organization that provides birthday celebrations to children struggling with homelessness and families in need. Toys will be collected onsite upon arrival via curbside pick up. Please place the toy in the trunk of your car. All parties that donate a toy will be entered to win a free Wild Encounter from the Zoo!

Cost is $20 per vehicle (exact change required, cash only.) Proceeds will go towards the Zoo’s Emergency Operating Fund as well as Beverly’s Birthdays. Drivers will be asked to place a $20 bill in a curbside bin upon arrival.

Pre-packaged snacks will also be available for purchase via cash or credit card including:

Popcorn $3.29
Cotton Candy $3.49
Soft Pretzel with cheese $5.99
Bottled Beverages $3.50
Please note: The Zoo remains closed to the public at this time. This event is a drive-thru experience in the Zoo’s parking lot. Zoo admission is not permitted at this time, and is not included in this event.
