Zoom On Over To The Santa Barbara Zoo – Giveaway

January 22, 2011

Newborn, Daniel, born Jan 9th, 2011.

Mishy and I haven’t been to the Santa Barbara Zoo yet, but we are terribly excited to go. Mishy is fascinated by giraffes and they have daily giraffe feedings from 11:30AM-2:30PM. They also recently announced the birth of Daniel, born on January 9th, 2011. He weighed 109 lbs and measured 5 feet, 9 inches tall. He will not be available for viewing for several weeks.

They also have baby otters.

For the people in your life who are fans of Princesses, they have an upcoming Princess Day.


Saturday, 3/12, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (9 a.m. Entry for SB Zoo Members Only)

Free with Zoo admission.

They jump! They sing! They turn into princes (though this is extremely rare). What better time than the day the clocks “spring forward” to celebrate the world’s many and varied frogs and amphibians? There are frog-inspired crafts, games and special animal appearances. All costumed princesses welcome – meet Cinderella, Snow Whiteand Sleeping Beauty! Plus, find out how Amphibian Ark and zoos and aquariums are working together to save the world’s amphibians.

They also have a Zoo Train, Carousel, Kellman Family Center, Barnyard, among other very fun activities and locations within the zoo!

I am happy to be able to give away a family pass (up to 4 people). Please leave a comment to enter. This giveaway ends on midnight on January 31st, 2011.

Here are some videos from Santa Barbara Zoo:


The Santa Barbara zoo represents over 600 animals from 18 species on 16 acres.

You can find them on Twitter and Facebook.

    I would love a family pass to Santa Barbara Zoo! My girls and I used to go there quite often, but then we started researching the county for my books, “Best Family Adventures: Santa Barbara County,” (BestFamilyAdventures.com) and our time’s been eaten up by editing, printing and promotions! Books are on shelves…now it’s time to return to play! 🙂

  36. mjmia Says:

    Oh no – I just saw that the giveaway deadline is on Feb. 11th and we just picked a winner. Needless to say, the giveaway is closed. (I thought the giveaway closing date must be Jan.31st from the previous comment. Next time I’ll check! It’s been a busy week for us.

  37. Krista Says:

    Sorry about that messing you up…I just inquired b/c I didn’t see the deadline, but saw your new contest and figured it must have been drawn already. woops! Since you already drew the winner, you can always go edit your post and change the deadline date…anyone coming into your blog now would never know and wouldn’t inadvertently try to enter. ~Krista
