White-cheeked gibbon family

Gibbon Birthday Party

Stone Zoo

Saturday, September 2, 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Like father, like son! White-cheeked gibbon dad Kien and his son Paddy are both celebrating birthdays in September, and guests are invited to join the festivities for Kien’s 16th birthday and Paddy’s 6th birthday!

The white-cheeked gibbon exhibit will be decorated for the occasion, and gibbons will enjoy birthday treats just for them. There'll also be something sweet for guests, who can enjoy a slice of birthday cake from Montilio’s Baking Company (available for the first 200 people, first-come, first-served).

Stop by the exhibit at 11:30 a.m. to meet the zookeepers and ask questions, and be sure to sign Kien and Paddy’s giant birthday card!

Gibbons are a species of ape and are endangered animals native to Southeast Asia. Learn more about white-cheeked gibbons in our Stone Zoo Animal section.
