Even though the weather outside is downright frigid, there is one place you can go in February that is warm. On February 17, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will be holding their fifth annual Fairytales and Frogs event in the RainForest.
This popular event combines polliwogs, princes and princesses for a “toadally” fun event that is dedicated to everything frogs. Guests are invited to participate in frog crafts, storytelling, games, meet the keeper talks and Get Close animal experiences. The best part is the RainForest is always kept at a toasty warm 80 degrees.
Come dressed as your favorite prince, princess or frog for a hop around the Radio Disney dance floor. Meet the Zoo’s larger than life frog mascots. You may even have a chance to meet a princess or two. This is a great event to get the kids out of the house to learn about the environmental importance of frogs, the perils they face in the wild from pollution and habitat loss and the role they play in some of our favorite stories and fairy tales.
For all children age 11 and younger, admission is free to the Zoo and RainForest with one paid adult admission. Adult residents of Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township (ID must be presented prior to purchase) will receive $5.25 admission to the RainForest and free admission to the Zoo following regular Monday admission rates. Out of county residents may also enjoy reduced winter admission rates to the Zoo and RainForest.
