Shark Week! says
The Saint Louis Zoo is celebrating its annual Shark Week!
— All land sharks are welcome to join in the fun!

Come to the Zoo dressed as a shark*, and get into Stingrays at Caribbean Cove presented by Mercy Kids for free! Swimming among the stingrays are bonnethead, white-spotted bamboo and brown-banded bamboo sharks.

Upon exit from the Cove, kids will receive an activity guide to take home. Interpreters will be floating around the Zoo to enlighten guests about Shark Week and spin tales about their toothy friends.

Friday, August 5
5 to 8 p.m.

Flit your fins at the Jungle Boogie concert featuring Hillbilly Authority at Schnuck Family Plaza in the center of the Zoo.

Saturday-Sunday, August 6-7
12 noon to 3 p.m.

Feel the warm soothing beat of the steel drum as you listen to the ethereal blend of calypso, reggae, bossa, Soca and Caribbean music with Lenny Frisch, playing live music outside Caribbean Cove. Also on the weekend, kids can join in shark-themed games and activities.

Make a pit stop at Ray's Bar & Grill, located next to the exhibit (open weather permitting), for fish 'n' chips, shrimp fajitas or an adult “shark attack” cocktail.
