Wizarding Day at Franklin Park Zoo!
April 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$11.95 – $16.95
Join us for a magical day at Franklin Park Zoo as we bring the wizarding world to you! Attend Quidditch lessons with the Tufts University Quidditch team, The Tufflepuffs, and enjoy magic tricks performed by professional magician, Darren Yong. Science on the Streets from Cambridge Science Festival will put your magical skills to the test as they teach you how to make things fly. And be sure to attend the Herbology class hosted by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, where they’ll teach you all about carnivorous plants, where they live, how to care for them and why some species are facing extinction.
At the education station, discover the threats animals are facing in the wild and how you can help defend these incredible species. There will also be special animal encounters and zookeeper talks about how we care for the Zoo’s fantastic beasts. Guests are encouraged to dress in their wizarding best as we celebrate all things magic.
