By: L'jeanne, Advertising Manager


The biggest kids fundraising party for Audubon Zoo is happening this Friday, April 27th. I don’t know how, but this event always manages to outdo itself every year!  Zoo To Do for Kids presented by Humana will donate proceeds to help revitalize the Elephant Fountain in Cooper Plaza. We are having the largest kids extravaganza of the year. I must tell you there is no other kids fundraiser like it in New Orleans and I’m not just saying that because I work here. It is truly a one of the kind experience for the family. As soon as you walk in there are games, prizes and all kinds of kid favorite foods for your enjoyment.  Wait let me back up before you even walk in there are drinks, popcorn, hot dogs and cotton candy right at the front entrance. Don’t get too caught up at the front though because there is sooo much more inside to entertain you.  On Cooper Plaza you can get up close to some of our hand held animals from all of our collections. As you go along, stop by the carousel, we’ve got free rides all night long and free swamp train rides too!  Over in the toddler area it’s a wonderland of fun for little tots!  We’ve got inflatables, art projects, face painting, music activities and bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. As you continue along the main stage in the field area you can get caricatures, play laser tag. There’s even a giant slide inflatable that the kids will be super excited about.  Also performing is J-Red and the Superstars. This group is loads of fun with great interactive dance songs.  While you’re jamming to the music in the main stage area, check out all the games your kids can play.  There’s ping-pong toss, a green screen video, bouncer and crawling activities. Remember all the kid friendly treats and food to eat. Over in this area you will find PB&J sandwiches, Dino nuggets, Red Beans and Rice (my kids’ fav!), pasta and meatballs, mac & cheese, pies and Rice Krispies Treats! Isn’t that the greatest assortment of kids foods ever?! Well that’s not even half of the treats we have in store for you.  But don’t let your little ones get too bogged down with treats. Experience the other activities as we’ve got tons more for you to do.  Your little girls are going to just love the Princess Play Land. You can jam to the DJ and get princess hair, see a red carpet fashion show, play in the fairies spacewalk and play games to win prizes. I may need to warn you your little darling will be in for a princess overload that she will love.  Oh and we didn’t forget about our boys. Over in the junior area there is a Spiderman obstacle course, radio controlled cars and the New Orleans Saints Experience. There is an abundance of activities for your kids. I just have to tell you, you’ve got to come to see it all! Tickets are on sale now until 3:00 pm on Friday. Join us at our grandest fundraiser for kids – Zoo To Do for Kids at Audubon Zoo!


Psst! Remember next week is the Whitney Zoo To Do this is the hottest fundraiser party in New Orleans for grownups!
