Each New Orleans Spring brings with it events we’ve all come to know and love. This spring, Zoo-To-Do for Kids Presented by Tulane Pediatrics, will bring us a roaring good time as this fun-filled, philanthropic event for children rocks Audubon Zoo on Friday, April 27.

Admission covers food, drink, giant inflatables and arcade games. The event also will feature the Zoo’s hand-held animals, cheerleading and sports clinics, face painting and temporary tattoos, arts and crafts, and separate areas for toddlers (1-5) and juniors (6-15). The menu includes cuisine from more than 40 local restaurants, as well as lots of kid-friendly snacks. Back for a third year, presenting sponsor Tulane Pediatrics will host a tent offering a variety of educational activities for families.

Put on your boogie shoes and get ready to dance to your favorite songs- live!- when The Super Stars perform on the Main Stage. Kids of all ages will enjoy a deejay in the junior area. Additionally, there will be dancing and entertainment for kids in the Princess Play Land area and the WTUL Kids Show with Chris Trochez in the Cooper Plaza area.

Proceeds from the Zoo-To-Do for Kids Presented by Tulane Pediatrics, along with the Whitney Zoo-To-Do (for adults) on May 4, will be used to celebrate the return of lions to Audubon Zoo in a brand new exhibit. Both Zoo-To-Do events will take place rain or shine. Be sure to purchase your tickets early (see box for information); no tickets will be sold on the night of the event.
