Ring in the holiday season with a visit to the Zoo for Breakfast with Santa & Friends. This year, in addition to the two events held on the Zoo’s Mansion House Porch, Dec. 14 and 20, the Zoo will be adding a special Breakfast with Santa & Friends at Penguin Coast, the Zoo’s newest exhibit on Dec. 6.

At each Breakfast with Santa & Friends, guests will enjoy a festive, hot breakfast buffet, have fun creating unique seasonal crafts, and meet some of Santa’s feathered friends (think penguins!). When you hear the jingle bells, Kris Kringle is on his way with his friend Sphen, the Zoo’s penguin mascot – a great family photo opportunity!

Tickets for “Breakfast with Santa & Friends” events are $25 for member adults, $35 for non-member adults, and $18 for children 2-12. Children under 2-years-old are free, but still require a ticket. Each event runs from 8:30 am until 10:00 am and same day admission to the Zoo is included in the ticket price. Tickets are on sale now at www.marylandzoo.org.  Space is limited.
