Join us for a LEGO-inspired Father’s Day on Saturday, June 16 from 9 am – 3 pm! Do you and your Dad like LEGO bricks? If so, walk through Animals Assembled Presented by Fiesta and stare in awe at over two dozen animals built entirely out of LEGO bricks! Build your own LEGO art on our art wall, participate in our LEGO scavenger hunt, and more! This event is included with your Zoo admission and is FREE for Zoo Members.
