A family event to ring in the “Zoo” year that is so fun, we’re doing it twice! On December 31 and January 1 Como Park Zoo & Conservatory will be filled with dancing, games, special animal enrichment, a DJ, and a countdown to noon when we rain down from above hundreds of thousands of pieces of colorful biodegradable confetti.
Ring in the New Year at Como! Bring the whole family from 10am – 1pm and help us celebrate with our party animals. We’ve ditched the plastic beach ball drop and made an environmental choice to go GREEN….and BLUE and RED and YELLOW and PURPLE and ORANGE as we rain down from above hundreds of thousands of pieces of colorful biodegradable confetti at HIGH NOON on December 31 and again on January 1.
Doors open at 10am with rockin’ tunes, dancing and games from the DJs of Kidsdance
Kids can make their own count-down craft, take a silly selfie at our selfie station, get creative at our face painting station, and visit the Xcel Energy station to learn about the small steps you can take at home to help conserve energy and make a big difference for the plants and animals we all love. Get a free LED light bulb while supplies last!
There will be games, dancing, zookeeper talks, giveaways, and contests as we count down to the Noon Year.
