The Zoo opens daily at 9:30 a.m. Join at the Pavilion starting at noon. Have lunch at one of three food trucks serving pizza, tacos or barbecue. Mom and dad can enjoy wine or beer and children can grab water or soft drinks.

Outdoor games will be in the grassy area next to the Pavilion. You can play corn hole, Jenga or Connect Four. An on-site DJ will play all your favorites! Don’t forget to wear your red shoes to show your support for the Ronald McDonald House.

There will be a Costume Contest for children aged 12 and under.The child must attend the event, and parents must sign a Waiver and Release so the pictures can be posted on Facebook. Pictures will be taken of each child in costume and posted after the event. The costume with the most likes will win a gift certificate.

There will be a silent auction with fabulous items. The auction will open on October 2, 2023. There will use a Text2Bid system, so don’t forget to include your phone number to receive the key word and short code.

Have your children make get-well cards for the children in the hospital. Visit the card-making station at the Pavilion.

The best thing about the event is that attendees are helping to keep families together and close to the care they need when they have a sick child.
