Santa Claus is coming to the Tropics!

Franklin Park Zoo

Saturdays, December 2, 9 & 16, 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Making spirits bright and the holiday season extra merry, jolly old St. Nick will return to Franklin Park Zoo this winter! The first three Saturdays in December, children can meet and take a photo with Santa inside the always balmy Tropical Forest building – home to western lowland gorillas, ring-tailed lemurs, a giant anteater and many more incredible animals.

Other activities include winter-themed arts and crafts, holiday-themed enrichment for the animals, and more festive fun!
