Happy birthday furry animals! All wolves, foxes, and coyotes are born in spring and Wolf Park is celebrating on Saturday, May 6 with a birthday party. Wolf Park’s animals’ birthdays are all within a couple of weeks of each other around late April/early May, so they host one big celebration! Each animal gets their own tasty, wolf-safe birthday cake to enjoy. Guests will have the chance to watch as the cakes are presented to the wolves. Each animal approaches this environmentally enriched activity with his or her own special flair.

DocumentJoin the Friends of Columbian Park Zoo for the inaugural Zoo Brew and Wine Too pub crawl event on Saturday, May 6. Enjoy an evening of animal encounters, live music, delicious hors d’oerves, and a variety of beer, wine and liquor samples from breweries, vineyards and distilleries as you work your way through several locations. Each location will include a signature cocktail, as well! The evening starts out in the Lahr Atrium where you’ll check in and be greeted by our animal ambassadors! Next, you’ll travel to the Knickerbocker Saloon, Professor Joes Sports Pub & Pizzeria, and Digby’s Pub and Patio throughout the night. You’ll end at the Knickerbocker Saloon for live entertainment and door prizes!

Check out the endless possibilities for fun events happening this upcoming weekend in or near Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.

It’s a party this Saturday, July 2, at Wolf Park! Bring the family for “Watermelon Party with the Wolves” where each wolf, fox and coyote  gets his or her very own cold watermelon, stuffed with treats such as pig ears, cheese, and dog biscuits. Visitors are invited to watch as each animal enjoys their summery treat. These unique treats provide environmental enrichment, giving our critters something to roll on, stuff their noses in, paw, lick, chew, scent-mark, and defend. Also, don’t miss howling with the wolves in the evening! A great way to celebrate Fourth of July!

Be the first to celebrate Lafayette-West Lafayette’s newest festival, the Tippecanoe & Bluegrass Too! Festival on July 2. From noon to 9pm, great music will be featured at Exploration Acres. The musical line-up includes Cumberland Gap, New Balance, Branded Bluegrass and Blue Mafia. Bring your lawn chairs for an afternoon and evening of fun. Concessions and craft beer will also be available.
