Kids can join scavenger hunts, help with animal feedings and make crafts at Saturday’s “Summer Season Celebration” at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
The 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event is free with admission to the zoo, 2101 N.E. 50th.
“It’s something (kids) can do when they get out of school,” said Candice Rennels, a zoo spokeswoman. “In the summertime, there’s always something going on to celebrate.”
The Oklahoma City Fire Deptartment and the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office will provide parents with child-identification kits so little visitors won’t be lost in the excitement, Rennels said.
A new children’s area is currently under construction at the zoo, but Rennels said there are still kid-friendly activities available, like the sea lion shows and “Dinosaurs Unearthed,” an exhibit filled with animatronic prehistoric beasts.
To celebrate Father’s Day, dads will be admitted to the zoo for free on Sunday, Rennels said.
Admission is $7 for adults and $4 for kids ages 3-11. For more information, visit or call 424-3344.
