Cleveland Metroparks Zoo presents a sure cure for cabin fever and the winter blahs - the hip, hoppin' Fairytales & Frogs event!
The fourth annual �toadally� awesome celebration of all things amphibian takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, February 18 in The RainForest, where it's 80 degrees year-round. 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.
Pull on your flippers or polish up your crown and learn all about the environmental importance of frogs and the unique role they play in fairytales and stories throughout history.
Guests can meet the Zoo's larger-than-life frog mascots and even a princess or two! Kids can get nose-to-nose with real frogs during Get Close encounters, have the chance to separate amphibian fact from fiction with the animal keepers, party with the Radio Disney Road Crew, listen to fairytales, play games and make a frog craft.
Then, explore the rest of The RainForest and see more than a dozen species of frogs, snakes, turtles and other reptiles.
Adult residents of Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township (with proper ID) receive $5.25 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.
