Did You Know?
Magellanic penguins are named after Ferdinand Magellan who first discovered them in 1519.
For the past few years, our visitors have expressed how much they love Boo at the Zoo, which is great because it’s one of our favorite events to put on here at PPZ! We love seeing all of the awesome costumes our friends both big and small come up with. There was only one problem; having it on one weekend in October made it really tough for a number of our out-of-town fans to attend. That’s why this year we expanded the event to take place over two weekends – giving folks some options for attending. After all, superheroes and princesses have busy schedules! The weather wasn't the kindest, but it stayed dry and we welcomed nearly 9000 guests over both weekends!
Even Iron Man and Princess Merida can't resisit stopping to watch Serena! Of course, we are big fans of the frog costume in the picture below too. Thanks to Shi Lessner Photography for the photos!
