Put your seatbelts on because we are getting ready to roll!  It’s that time of year where we  just keep rolling and rolling with fun, fun, fun!  Kicking off Audubon’s version of  March Madness is our tenth annual Soul Fest March 2ndand 3rd. Headlining the show this year is one of our very own local musicians and he’s a Grammy award nominee., It’s Luke James! Of course you know at Soul Fest we’ll have all the great Creole cuisine like Jambalaya Balls, Boudin Balls and Stuffed Bell Peppers. Nah that’s some good eattin’! After you’ve had a good time at Soul Fest don’t get too settled because you’ll want to hear the tribute to Max Roach’s M’Boom coming to the zoo on Saturday, March 9thfrom noon to 2pm. Live on the Capital One stage you’ll hear the Jason Marsalis’ Percussion Ensemble, it’s an All-Star, All-Percussion Band. The band has a sound mixed with chimes, timbales, marimba, vibes, xylophone, Tympani, an array of bells and steel drums.  It’s a colorful set that fans of jazz and percussion will no doubt enjoy. Hold on! There’s more in the month of March! We’ve got to save the world one festival at a time with Earth Fest on Saturday, March 16th.  We will have games and activities for the kids throughout the day. There will be live performances by the Vieux Carre Band and South Band.  Oh and wait ‘til you hear this! Your little tots will go b-a-n-a-n-a-s when they see Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba and Peppa Pig.  They will be out and about to greet with the kids during the festival.  And remember, as we try to conserve and reuse items be sure to bring in at least a dozen beads and get a coupon for $3 off adult or $2 off child admission to the zoo for Earth Fest!What a deal we have and we’re recycling too!  Also in March, yes, there is more! We’ve got new gigantic flesh eating Dinosaurs!!!  At Audubon's Dinosaur Adventure come see the Acrocanthosaurus and the Muttaburrasaurus, trying saying that three times fast. And finally in March Cool Zoo will open March 30thannnd we’re open on Easter Sunday annnd we have a special open Monday, on April 1st.  Whew we’ve got a lot coming up and it’s going to a fun fun time for all!
