Just because the Philadelphia Zoo is America’s oldest zoo doesn’t mean it can’t celebrate the holidays in a completely newfangled fashion.
For the next two weekends (December 10-11 and December 17-18), the zoo will help you experience the holidays like never before.
Visit with Santa, watch orangutans and tigers open presents, join the Zoo Holiday Parade, sing Christmas carols to the animals and watch as Santa feeds, penguins, polar bears and tortoises.
In the Treehouse, you’ll be able to get your photo taken with Santa, enjoy a special hot chocolate bar and shop for holiday gifts for loved ones.
Bring a holiday card to your favorite animal, and Santa’s helpers will make sure it gets hand-delivered that day!
Santa Days are free with zoo admission.
