Your family can enjoy a gourmet, festive breakfast buffet complete with a visit from the man of the hour: Santa.
When Santa arrives, your family will have the opportunity to take a picture with him, and holiday costumed characters will visit everyone's table. Children will also receive something special from the jolly man's bag of goodies. And as a special treat for parents, you'll receive free parking.

Dec. 7-8 (must register by Dec. 2)
Dec. 14 & 15 (must register by Dec. 9)
Dec. 21 & 22 (must register by Dec. 16)

Cost is $18 per child (ages 2-12) and $25 for adults for Zoo members; $20 per child and $27 for adults for non-members.
Free for children under age 2. Advance registration is required.
