Sweet Safari for Education

The NEW Zoo & Adventure Park, in partnership with the Howard-Suamico Education Foundation, is pleased to announce the hosting of a brand new, family-friendly event:

The Sweet Safari for Education: A Wild Artistic Adventure

This event will be held on Thursday, May 12th,  from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Sweet Safari will feature free samples of “sweet treats” from a variety of local vendors and restaurants.  While guests make their way through the zoo to enjoy these tasty treats, they can also participate in several other fun activities, including children’s games, live animal encounters, free carousel rides, and more. A bounce house and inflatable obstacle course will be available, weather permitting, and a special art show, featuring over 150 pieces of artwork from Howard-Suamico School District students, will be on display, too.  These works of art will feature endangered species, including species found at the NEW Zoo!

Advance tickets are available at several local Festival Foods locations: De Pere, Green Bay East, Green Bay West, and Suamico; at the Suamico Citgo; at the Howard-Suamico School District Office; and at the NEW Zoo’s Visitor Center building.  Tickets for the event are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Children under 2 will be free.

All proceeds raised during the event will benefit education programs, both at the NEW Zoo and throughout the Howard-Suamico School District.  Thanks to our event sponsors and Sweet Treat Stations: Beerntsen’s Candies; Breadsmith; CheeseCake Heaven, Inc.; Discovery Education; Festival Foods; KI; LaJava a Roasting House; Miron Construction; Monkey Tailz; Montoure Hanson Teske Orthodontic Care; Olde World Pastries Plus LLC; Poppin’ Z’s Gourmet Popcorn; Sam & Louie’s Pizzeria; SMT Machine & Tool, Inc.; The Avenue 91.1; The Shepherd’s Kids; Winner Green Gum; Woodman’s Markets; Zesty’s Frozen Custard & Grill.
