On a relatively quiet weekend in Uptown New Orleans, Audubon Zoo is stepping up with one of the major children’s events of the year: the Zoo-to-Do for Kids.
“Audubon Zoo is transformed into a magical play land filled with live entertainment, face painters, musical performances by Radio Disney, sports and cheerleading clinics, strolling performers, arcade games, inflatables, crafts and a video game center,” reads the event website. “Your ticket purchase also includes complimentary food and beverages to delight every palate.”
The gala, which also includes a Sponsor and Patron Party for adults, costs $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Proceeds will benefit the creation of the Twilight Zoo, extended-hours programming at the zoo for summertime evenings.
