Saluting military and emergency personnel
Day of Honor
Sunday, September 8, 2013
10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Join us in the Main Plaza as we pay tribute to the men and women who keep us safe all year long and see some of the vehicles they use as they do!
Get up close to a real fire truck, police car and ambulance, plus mini-versions of a helicopter and an F-16 fighter jet, plus take part in some cool crafts and activities.
As a special treat, PNC Bank’s Mobile Learning Adventure will be on hand to provide fun, interactive and educational activities, such as a dress-up photo station, games, giveaways and more!
Sign our giant thank-you cards that will be presented at 1:30 p.m. to honor some very special heroes.
All Day of Honor activities are free with regular Zoo admission.
The Zoo is also offering free admission for all police, firefighters, EMTs and military personnel when they show their professional ID.
