My family loves our local zoo. The Palm Beach Zoo offers so many amazing activities for children. A few of our favorites are homeschool programs, holiday events, story times and Safari Nights.
Safair Nights are every Friday evening during the summer months. Each night the zoo feature’s a different family-friendly theme and includes entertainment for guests of all ages! The Dinosaur/Jurassic Park theme was a hit with my boys.
The zoo comes alive in a different way at Safari Nights with music and many activities for children. Zoo keepers have animals out for kids to get up close with, some to touch, photo ops as well as asking questions.
Children will never get bored with all the entertainment that is offered such as face painting, air rush tattoos, costume contests, sand art, character meet ‘n’ greets, bounce house and/or other live kid’s entertainment! My son and daughter played a friendly game of giant checkers while my little guy played ring toss and when that was over my daughter, who loves crafts did a sand art butterfly.
The zoo has thought of everything they have a nice big interactive water fountain for kids to play in. For the little ones who do not like the fountains The Palm Beach Zoo sets out several water tables for them to play in.
Plus the zoo is open to explore all of it’s animals. I found that going in the evening is nice because it is not so hot out and the animals are out more from their shaded hiding places. We had the opportunity to get to see them a bit more in the evening than during daytime hours.
There is only one more Safari Night left this year and the theme is Back to School Carnival! If you cannot make the last one no need to worry because The Palm Beach Zoo offers many great events through out the year so be sure to check them out!
