Columbian Park Zoo will host its annual Holiday Drop & Shop on Saturday, December 3, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Holiday Drop & Shop is a great opportunity for parents to take care of their holiday shopping, run errands, or sneak in some “me” time while the kids enjoy a fun-filled day at the Zoo. Zoo Educators will provide a semi-structured day that will include crafts, games, activities, and hands-on encounters with live Animal Ambassadors.

Holiday Drop & Shop is a FREE service for Zoo Members and $30 per family for Non-Members (includes up to 2 children, $5 per child thereafter). This program is for children 5 years old to 12 years old. A snack will be provided, but children should bring a packed lunch, if desired. Children can be dropped-off and picked-up any time during the program time frame.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged as space in the program is limited. Registration forms and information can be found at

Please contact the Zoo Education Department at 765-807-1540 or email to check availability and for other questions.

If you are not a Zoo member and would like to be become one, please visit for more information or contact Christopher Pullins, Zoo Marketing Manager at 765- 807-1545 or .
