KIDS FUNFARI

July 12, 2014 from 9am to 2pm

Get wild about being outside! Binder Park Zoo Kids FUNfari invites children to explore opportunities with various local organizations who are working together to promote fun and healthy activity alternatives to television and video games and gets kids excited to be outside.

The Lemur Lap is the kick-off to the day’s event, and a great way to get kids moving! A spin-off of our popular Cheetah Case, this non-competitive race is for children 10 and under.

Booths and activities are held inside the Zoo and are included in admission. While supplies last, all children ages 2-10 entering the Zoo will receive a reusable goodie bag.
