About This Event

Looking for something to do over the Thanksgiving holiday? Join the Santa Parade! That's right, you won't be standing on the side at this parade, but following Santa as he delivers presents to some of the zoo animals. Meet a few zookeepers along the way and find a few treats for yourself. 

After the parade, warm up with a cocoa/cookie combo at the cafe for only $2. Then, start exploring to find a Moose on the Loose. Find one of the photos of the moose, take a selfie and tag DPZ's social media pages for a chance to win a Friends of the Zoo membership. 

Wrap up your holiday shopping at the gift shop. November 29-December 24, 10% off gift shop merchandise (food and AAZK items excluded). FOZ members receive 20% off; Cheetah, Tiger & Lion Club members, take 30% off!

And of course, a Friends of the Zoo membership is a One Size Fits All gift good for the entire family!
