Holiday Hoot at the Utica Zoo

Utica Zoo presents its annual Holiday Hoot celebration scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. on the zoo grounds.

Great for all ages, the day includes many activities perfect for the winter season. Get your picture taken with Santa! Printed photos are an extra cost, but you are welcome to bring your own camera.

Kids will be able to participate in crafts, story time, and animal meet-and-greets in the auditorium. Free hot drinks, cookies and candy canes will be served.

Stop by the Gift Shop where you can shop for everyone on your list, or purchase an enrichment item for one of the animals. Utica Zoo memberships and renewals are $5 off from now until Christmas Eve. (Must purchase at the Utica Zoo Gift Shop.)

Are you in the giving mood? Bring gifts for zoo animals and zookeepers from their wish list: or purchase a special Animal Adoption Box.
