It's time to pack up the tadpoles and head to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's third annual Fairytales & Frogs event!
The �toadally� awesome celebration of all things amphibian takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, February 20 in The RainForest. All kids 11 and younger receive FREE admission to the Zoo and The RainForest with a paid adult admission, and everyone is encouraged to come dressed as a princess, prince or frog.
Leave the lily pad behind for a day and thaw out in The RainForest, where it's always 80-degrees, while you learn about the environmental importance of frogs and the unique role they have played in fairytales and stories throughout history.
Visitors will have the chance to meet the Zoo's larger-than-life frog mascots and a princess. There are Get Close encounters with real frogs, a chance to separate amphibian fact from fiction with the animal keepers, the Radio Disney Road Crew with music, dancing and prizes, plus crafts, stories and more.
The RainForest is home to more than a dozen frog species, many of them endangered, along with plenty of other reptiles, turtles and snakes.
So shine up your tiara, or make yourself a funky frog costume, because this party will be hoppin'!
Adult residents of Cuyahoga County (with proper ID) receive $5 admission to The RainForest and free admission to the Zoo, following regular Monday admission rates. Out-of-county residents can also enjoy reduced winter admission to the Zoo and The RainForest.
