Children Ring in the New Year With Zoo Animals
Children Used Makeshift Passports to Travel Around the Zoo "World"
DULUTH, Minn.-Children looked on in awe as Lana the Tiger stalked around her enclosure.
Many kids held makeshift passports in their hands.
“They go around the zoo to collect their stamps from various countries and while they’re doing that they can find out what time it is here, if it’s midnight there and they also get to learn how some of the cultures celebrate New Years Eve,” explained Megan Myer , the Special Events Coordinator for the Lake Superior Zoo.
It’s all part of the Lake Superior Zoo’s New Years Celebration, where families had the chance to see animals up close and personal, and take part in fun activities.
While children had fun seeing the animals, it’s also a chance to learn about them
Both Animals inside and outside were available to see, so people who wanted to could stay warm while visiting the zoo, and ring in the new years with the Animals that they love
“I don’t like being really cold,” said 5-year old Hazel, who was visiting the zoo.
