Norristown, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/20/2017 -- To celebrate the 2017 holiday season, Elmwood Park Zoo is pleased to announce that they will be hosting a jam-packed lineup of events. From enduring favorites including "Brunch with Santa," to brand new events such as their "Gingerbread House Workshops," the zoo has more to see and do throughout the holiday season than ever before. Those searching for one of the leading event venues in Philadelphia, PA, and the surrounding areas, do not have to look any further than Elmwood Park Zoo.
This year's festivities begin with the addition of two reindeer. Beginning on Friday, November 24, guests of the zoo will be able to see the reindeer daily, and also purchase photos with the reindeer during select times throughout the day.
A new event that the zoo will be hosting this year is a Christmas Tree Decorating Contest. Between November 20, 2017, and December 1, 2017, people are encouraged to bring their fully-decorated artificial trees to be displayed along the main path for guests to enjoy. Public voting will take place throughout December, and prizes will be awarded to those with the best Business, Family, and Group-submitted trees.
On December 1, 2017, at 5:30 p.m., Elmwood Park Zoo will light it's own Christmas tree. At this event that is free to attend, guests will be able to meet Santa and enjoy holiday-themed crafts.
The Gingerbread House Workshops is another new event for this year. Guests will be able to build their own gingerbread houses with delicious ingredients that are supplied by Bredenbeck's Bakery. The workshops will include an appearance by Santa, a meet-and-greet with one of the zoo's education animals, and holiday music.
From December 1, 2017, through December 23, 2017, "Brunch with Santa" will return to the Elmwood Park Zoo during weekends.
