Family Zoo Snoozes

. March 21, 2013.

The time-honored sleepover gets a much-needed (and super cool) overhaul from the Toledo Zoo this season. Family Zoo Snoozes, overnight experiences that were previously reserved for youth groups of 25 or more, are now open to families and their children, 5 and up. Kids and their parents bring sleeping bags and camp out at the Forest Room of Nature’s Neighborhood or in tents, enjoying a behind-the-scenes experience of animal interaction, keeper talks, tours and of course, the all-important snack time. The season’s first Family Zoo Snooze will be themed “Playful Primates” and takes place Saturday, April 6; pre-registration is required, as event reservations are expected to fill quickly. For May through November event themes and times, call 419-385-5721 ext. 2042 or visit
