Come on out for the last weekend of the free Delta Dental Winter Zoo at the St Louis Zoo! This weekend is the Delta Dental Mardi Gras celebration with fun for the whole family with live entertainment, games, and more. All of the excitement takes place in The Living World and around the Zoo. Plus, you can watch the penguins parade around the Zoo at 1:30pm!
The Zoo-style party is complete with mask-making, beads, face painting and grand finale parade:
--The Delta Dental Stage Show will be held at 12:30 in The Living World's Anheuser-Busch Theater, and children will be given a free gift bag to take home with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, a coloring sheet and a mirror decal to remind them to brush every day.
--Dance to live music by Bob Case and His Wild Accusations
--Create your own unique mask of sequins, glitter and feathers in the Mardi Gras tradition.
--Mardi Gras beads for everyone!
--At 3:00, join in the parade around the Zoo led by the Zoo's costumed penguin and Delta Dental costumed characters "Tooth Wizard" and "P.A.N.D.A."
