There is ALWAYS "wild" fun going on at the Lake Superior Zoo!  In fact, did you know you can have a sleep over there? There are summer camp programs for learning and fun!  Or, you could consider having your birthday party there.  Speaking of birthday parties, you're invited to the Angolan colobus monkeys Kermit and Kaya's birthday party and watch them open their presents.  Plus, you can start training now for "Run Like An Animal".

I LOVE monkeys!!!  Besides dogs, they are my most favorite animal! The birthday party is planned for Sunday, July 13 and the whole family is invited.  Come early to enjoy ALL the animals at the zoo!

There will be cake, ice cream, fruit toppings, games, entertainment, drawings and more. Sing happy birthday to Angolan colobus monkeys Kermit and Kaya and watch them open their presents.
