Winter Events at the Philadelphia Zoo

Event #1 Zoo Noel, 11am-3pm, November 30th & December 1st, 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th

On three weekends of December, the zoo transforms into a winter theme park.  To give an illusion of Santa roaming the globe, there are festive scenes showing a life sized Santa. There will be red pandas roaming around the zoo, tigers pouncing, and polar bears playing in the cool, wintery air. This is recommended for people who love animals and just can’t get enough of them.

Event #2 Wild at Heart, 11am-3pm, February 2014

The Zoo will host its annual Valentine’s weekend events and will showcase exciting love-themed activities the whole weekend. There is a family friendly self guided “Love Tour” of some famous animal couples and you can watch the animals receive little gifts from their trainers! This is highly recommended for young couples to bond and really just have fun.
