Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at the Toledo Zoo

Posted Apr 26th, 2012 by Andi Norman  Category: Arts & Entertainment, Toledo.com


Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico’s rich heritage, freedom and liberty. On Sunday, May 6, the Toledo Zoo shares in the festivities with music, dance and all-day fun. It’s one reason the Zoo has become Cinco de Mayo headquarters for families in the region.

You can join in the family-friendly fun with these activities, all free with regular Zoo admission. Events run 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Zoo’s Main Plaza; in case of rain, the activities and performances move indoors to the Museum of Science.

11 a.m. – 12 p.m. DJ Tony Rios
12 – 1 p.m. El Corazon de Mexico Folklorico Dance Group
1 p.m. Kids, take a swing at our piñata filled with tasty treats!
1 – 2 p.m. DJ Tony Rios
2 – 3 p.m. El Corazon de Mexico Folklorico Dance Group

Follow the festivities at toledozoo.org/cinco.

And mark your calendar for a return visit May 18-20, when the Zoo’s innovative new elephant exhibit, Tembo Trail, opens. It’s all made possible by the 2006 Lucas County capital levy voters, along with contributors to the Zoo’s capital campaign. Updates about Tembo Trail will be available at toledozoo.org/tembotrail as Grand Opening Weekend, sponsored by The Andersons, draws closer.
