Do you live in the New York area or will be visiting soon? I have a great (and almost free) way to spend some quality time with your family during this upcoming Christmas break and/or vacation….Visit the Bronx Zoo! Right now through December 31 when you donate a unwrapped toy at the Bronx Zoo, Queens Zoo, or the Central Park Zoo to help support local families, you will receive one FREE general admission ticket to the Bronx Zoo! Visit http://bronxzoo.com/toydrive/ for more details.
I wish I lived closer because next week they have some extra fun going on with the Wildlife Ice Carving Week! Doesn’t this look like so much fun?!?!?
Salute to Wildlife Ice Carving Week at the Bronx Zoo: Bigger, Better, and Icier!
This holiday season, don’t miss the Bronx Zoo’s Salute to Wildlife Ice Carving Week! Every day from December 26 – 31, 2013, watch as master ice carvers craft magical sculptures of majestic Arctic Beringia animals, soar down a 25 foot long polar bear ice slide, sit atop a giant Bowhead whale sculpture, and explore a real life igloo!
On Saturday, December 28th, visit our fourth annual Salute to Wildlife Ice Carving Competition where carvers from around the tri-state will compete. You can vote for your favorite animal-themed sculpture and pick this year’s winner. You can also enjoy the Toy Soldier Parade Carolers as they capture the season with favorite holiday songs, meet and take a photo with OLIVIA™ from the popular children’s book series, get free OLIVIA™ books while supplies last, make your own Arctic-themed crafts, and visit thousands of rare and amazing animals for the best family holiday fun this season.
