Seasonal Programs

Creepy Crawlies & Crafts

Yikes! Join us on October 13 at 6:00 pm for an evening of creepy crawly critters as we bring the zoo to you. Dickerson Park Zoo is bringing 3 animal ambassadors for a fabZOOlous encounter experience. After meeting and learning about the animals, youth will have the chance to pick out and paint a pumpkin. Parents can enjoy a chance for their child to make a fall craft without making a mess at home. Fee is $15 per initial child and $10 per each additional sibling.

The Great Turkey Hunt

Gather your family, grab your turkey call and head out to the local parks on November 24-28. The turkeys are on the loose again. Can you find and snap a picture with these wild wooden turkeys hidden throughout our park system? Find and submit a photo with our Golden Turkey to be entered in a drawing for prizes donated by local businesses! This is a free program.

A Merry Madagascar Drive-In

Move it, move it on over to the Republic Community Center on December 17 for an indoor movie drive-in extravaganza. Build a cardboard box car, watch A Merry Madagascar, show off your moves during King Julien's dance party, help Santa catch his loose reindeer, visit the concession stand for holiday treats, and make a Christmas craft. Fee is $10 per initial child and $5 per each additional sibling.
