March of the Penguins 2013

27-Jul-2013 - 27-Jul-2013

Saturday, July 27

Don't miss this popular annual event! Watch our five adorable adolescent Magellanic penguins waddle through the Zoo to their new home on Penguin Island as part of the Zoo's annual March of the Penguins. This event celebrates the penguin chicks' graduation from "fish school" and reunion with their fellow penguins.

Exclusive naming contest for Members only. You can enter a contest to name one of the chicks. Entry forms will be handed out as you enter the Zoo (one form per family). Drop your completed entries in the box at the end of Penguin Island near the otters. Good luck!

Not a Member? Join now to get this close to our penguin chicks!

9 a.m. Zoo opens. Get there early to get a good spot before 9:40.
9:40 a.m. Naming contest winner announced. You must be present to win.
9:30 a.m. Penguins march!
