Santa at the Animal Park
With the cold weather dropping and the sound of jingle bells in the air—the Animal Park residents are gearing up for their visit from Santa Claus. On December 12th, Santa will be at the Animal Park—ensuring that all of the animals receive extra treats and toys for being so good this year—and he would love to see you, too!
Between the hours of 10AM-3PM on Saturday, December 12th, we’ll be offering a variety of holiday fun—including Santa’s Safari tours, s’mores around the fire, photos with Santa†, fun games, and much more! Snap your own photo with your phone, or for the low donation of $5.00, guests will receive a digital professional photo within 24 hours of the photoshoot.
Make sure to bundle up the family and grab the wishlists before heading out to enjoy such a special day. Celebrate the holidays in the wildest way possible, with the Animal Park!
