Bronx Zoo Turns 110 this Sunday
Tue Nov 3
"Happy Birthday to you, You belong in a zoo...." Never will the words to that song ring truer than this Sunday, when the Bronx Zoo celebrates its 110th birthday. The first 110 visitors to arrive will receive free admission —that's a value $52 for a family of four—so arrive early (the zoo opens at 10am). In honor of the occasion, the wildlife conservation society is throwing a fabulous shindig (just in case seeing tons of animals isn't enough of a draw for your kids to make the trip). On the lineup of activities is a cake-cutting ceremony (of course), performances throughout the day by the Wildlife Theater players and lots of learning demonstrations involving the zoo's resident sea lions.
