Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo offers holiday-themed activities to its youngest visitors starting Friday



Fort Wayne, Indiana – Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo constantly comes up with ideas and implements new ways to offer fun to their youngest visitors.

This time, they are offering children a chance to meet with Santa Claus and participate in a variety of holiday-themed activities in addition to seeing the animals at the zoo.

“We wanted to give guests a chance to see some of their Zoo friends during the holiday season, like Ellie the cow, Loki the Canada lynx, Cassandra the sea lion, and Anne the red panda,” said Rick Schuiteman, Executive Director. “You can even visit Santa in his workshop, brush the goats, touch a stingray, and ride the train. Your little one won’t want to miss Story Time and hear Twas’ the Night Before Christmas at the Zoo, a story that takes place at our very own Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.”

The Wild Things Gift Shop is where parents may buy souvenirs, zoo passes, and animal feeding tickets.

The Wild Zoo Wonderland event will take place at the Zoo from December 2 through December 4, 9 through 11, 16 through 22, from 10 am to 3 pm each day.

The general entry price is $8; admission for children aged 12 and under is $6; and admission is free for zoo members.
