Fun in the Tropics at Franklin Park Zoo
March 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$25. – $40.
Longing for an island getaway? Escape to the Tropics with the Zoo’s young professionals group, The Wild Things, at Franklin Park Zoo! Join us in your best luau gear and dance your way through the Tropical Forest with music from a live DJ and compete in animal-themed games with friends!
Watch the ring-tail lemurs as they discover tropical themed treats as enrichment in their decorated exhibit, and don’t miss special opportunities to meet some of the Zoo’s animal ambassadors. Join zoo staff to learn more about the free-flight birds, including scarlet ibis, yellow-billed storks, hadada ibis and more!
This is a 21+ event and includes two complimentary glasses of beer or wine, appetizers and a cash bar. Western lowland gorillas, pygmy hippopotamus, and a Linnes two-toed sloth are just a few of the animals that call the 72 degree Tropical Forest home.
Proceeds from Fun in the Tropics will support the operation and continued growth of Zoo New England, its education programs, and conservation initiatives.
