Celebrate the beginning of the winter season in true zoo fashion during Santa and Friends on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
In conjunction with Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation, you and your family will visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus while you meet some of their special animal friends that live at the zoo. Meet the penguins, snakes, rabbits, the llama and more as you enjoy games and pastries.
Santa and Friends, a first-time event that replaces Breakfast with Santa, takes place only in the William J. Maeck Education Center. Cost is $5 each for ages 2 and up, $1 each for TPZS members ages 2 and up. Under 2 is free but must still register. The zoo is now closed for the season and will not be open to the public at this time.
This is a one day only event and you MUST register in advance as you will select an arrival time on the hour. Space is already very limited and walk-in admission on the day of the event will NOT be available. So don’t delay, register your family right away at https://www.idahofallsidaho.gov/1434/Santa-and-Friends. Questions? Call (208) 612-8453.
