Rise and Shine on the Farm (Ages 2+)
COCK-A-DOODLE-DO! Join zookeepers in the Alex and Ani Farmyard for a special morning on the farm before the Zoo opens to the public. Enjoy a continental breakfast of bagels, muffins, fruit, yogurt, juices and coffee outside the Farmhouse, and explore the Farmyard as zookeepers get the day started. This event is “free-range,” so guests can go at their own pace to explore the many activities, including the cow milking, egg collection stations, and the produce growing and play station. Watch a sheep shearing demonstration, visit with a beekeeper, watch a farrier trim a donkey's hooves and even learn about worm composting with RI Worm Farmers Cooperative.
Date: Saturday, June 10 (rain or shine)
Time: 9:00 am
Cost: $25/members, $35/non-members
Please note: Capacity is limited to 40 participants. Pre-registration is required. Ticket price includes a continental breakfast, program, and admission to the Zoo post program.
One of the best things about the warmer weather is Food Truck Friday at the Carousel. If you have never experienced the array of foods and delicious sweets from the vendors at this magnificent event - put it on your calendar today. The Carousel is open for rides, as are other Carousel Village activities - weather permitting.
Food Truck Friday takes place every Friday evening, now through September 29 from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.
