Celebrate Mardi Gras the wildest way possible – at the Zoo!  Join us on Saturday, February 6th as our animals are given special Fat Tuesday inspired treats.

Wear your best beads and be sure to bring a good camera as this is a guaranteed opportunity to see some of your favorite animals at their most active times.  We hope you can join us!
