Partake with the Predators
Many animals get their food by hunting, catching and eating other animals. Have a nice breakfast at the zoo, and then hear about how some of the zoo’s animals are perfectly adapted to be effective predators. After the chat, children will create a Model Magic sculpture of their favorite predator and do a similarly themed activity sheet to explore even more!

Family fun, the Freedom First "Scoops" Ice Cream truck, Ken & Jayne's Hot Dog stand, and a special visit by the Heroes of Star City at 12pm. The Festival is Free, but the "cost" of admission is school supplies to benefit the Botetourt County Schools
