Winter Weekends with the Toledo Zoo

Posted Jan 25th, 2012 by Andi Norman  Category: Community Interest


Toledo, Ohio—Every season at the Toledo Zoo offers something exciting, and winter is no exception. This winter, the Zoo celebrates the season with Winter Weekends, which continue through February. These weekends feature sizzling activities at half-price admission (Lucas County residents get an extra discount). It’s frosty fun that might just make you forget it’s winter!

Presented by Mercy Children’s Hospital, each of the Winter Weekends offers cool activities in warm places, from magic and puppet shows to ice-carving demonstrations, live dance performances and hands-on science. That’s on top of Cabin Fever Feeds, where you can watch some of your favorite Zoo animals chow down all across the Zoo — from sharks and vultures to orangutans and hornbills.

Visit toledozoo.org/winter for a schedule of activities, all offered free with regular half-price admission. New this year is a free iPhone game app, Cocoa Loco, pitting you against the marshmallows of the Zoo’s famous hot chocolate.

In addition to half-price admission in February, the Zoo will offer free admission to Lucas County residents from Saturday, February 18 through Monday, February 20, as a thank-you for Lucas County voters’ longtime levy support of the Zoo.

The Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information, please visit toledozoo.org or call (419) 385-4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge each Monday from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.

The Toledo Zoo is committed to inspiring others to join in caring for animals and conserving the natural world. As part of that mission, The Toledo Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), a leader in global wildlife conservation. AZA member institutions are dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for visitors and a better future for all living things.
