Cinco de Mayo

May 6, 2017

2017 Cinco de Mayo slideWe’ll celebrate Mexican-American culture (a day late) with an authentic schedule of events:

Watch the colorful dance moves of Ballet Folklorico del Big Country throughout the day: Performances are scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. — 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. — and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Try your luck at Loteria (Mexican Bingo)! Games will take place in the zoo pavilion from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Cost to play is 50 cents per game card — and we’re awarding prizes!

The zoo’s animal collection will highlight which species can be found south of the border, and the Hispanic Leadership Council has an educational display on hand, as well.

Yummy treats: We’ve got a pro making fresh tamales for the day, and Try a refreshing paleta (Mexican popsicles) at our Paleta cart!
