Blank Park Zoo Adventure Days
It's a little bit of short notice for the first one, but it will be worth a last minute trip if you don't already have plans today. Blank Park Zoo is having Adventure Days every other Saturday throughout the summer. This first one is a Cinco de Mayo theme. While it isn't free admission to the zoo, the extra events don't cost extra. May 5 – Fiesta Latina Experience the zoo in a new way- in Spanish, as you learn about Latin American countries and cultures. Do you know which animals at our zoo originate from Latin American countries? Have you ever Salsa danced? Don’t miss the flower making activity from the Latino Heritage Festival and the performances and lessons from Salsa Des Moines from 2-5pm. Check out the whole schedule here, and as always this has been added to the free fun calendar on the right. If you know of any other events I've missed, I always welcome reader submissions.
