Party Information 

Birthday parties are available most Saturdays and Sundays all year long and take place in the News Sentinel Birthday Party Place.  Parties last an hour and a half.  A party consultant runs the party from set-up to clean-up.

After the party, you and your birthday party guests can visit the zoo.  If the weather is too bad to visit the zoo, you and your guests will receive passes to come back another day.
