Family fun on Waitangi Day

FFD Feb 2014 activity table2

Waitangi Day fell on a gorgeous summer day this year and families made the most of it, heading to Hamilton Zoo for a special Family Fun Day.

Kids got to enjoy free face painting, ice blocks (thanks to Tip Top), Undercover Cody paid a visit handing out stickers, tattoos and wristbands and making sure everyone was being sunsmart and Jazz band 'Art Gecko' played throughout the afternoon.

Extra keeper talks were held during the day, giving people the opportunity to learn more about their favourite animal from the keepers who care for them each day.
