You heard me right! You can come and ice skate at the San Francisco Zoo this year! Of course, that’s in addition to visiting the reindeer, taking a spin on the Carousel, taking a ride on the puffer train and getting to know the zoo’s residents a little better.
From the SF Zoo’s December 2007 Animail Newsletter:
ICE SKATING JOINS REINDEER ROMP FOR A HOLIDAY CELEBRATION!
Now until New Year’s Day
Celebrate the magic of the holidays at the 3rd Annual Reindeer Romp! Come to the San Francisco Zoo this holiday season to see Santa’s reindeer and slide, glide and twirl on the ice skating rink. Holly, Velvet, Belle and Peppermint have landed once again to bring the spirit of the season to children of all ages. Families, couples and ice skating enthusiasts will delight in taking to the ice at the Zoo’s first-ever holiday ice skating rink. Make special holiday plans to gather your family and friends to come ice skating, meet Santa’s reindeer, design antlers to wear, enjoy holiday entertainment on December weekends, and even watch other Zoo animals enjoy holiday treats! You won’t want to miss these “en-DEER-ing” creatures. Be the first ever to ice skate at the San Francisco Zoo!
And don’t forget – I donate a portion of every commission I earn to the San Francisco Zoo, another great institution that makes San Francisco a fabulous place to live!
