TOLEDO - The chill in the air can only mean one thing – it’s time for Frozentoesen at the Toledo Zoo. With half-price admission and a cool assortment of frosty fun, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to beat the “it’s January” blues.
Presented by St. Vincent’s Mercy Children’s Hospital, Frozentoesen features Cabin Fever Feeds each weekend, offering visitors the chance to watch some of their favorite zoo animals chow down.
Plan to visit the ice-carving demonstrations each Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will also be live performances by local musicians in the zoo’s historic Indoor Theatre.
Visit www.toledozoo.org, for a complete schedule of activities.
In addition to half-price admission in January and February, the zoo will also offer free admission to Lucas County residents from Jan. 17 to 19. In addition to the full slate of Frozentoesen activities, visitors will also receive special coupons offering further discounts to Lucas County residents throughout the year. A similar Lucas County Appreciation Weekend will be held over President’s Day weekend in February.
The Toledo Zoo, open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information, visit the Web site or call 419-385-4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge each Monday from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
