Due to COVID-19 all events are tentative and their dates are subject to change.
Our Annual Holiday Magic celebration is back at the Central Coast’s ONLY Zoo! The zookeepers have stepped in as Santa’s Elves to prepare gifts for the animals. Santa will be at the Zoo on Saturday, December 18th to help welcome visitors and deliver gifts to the animals. Plan to come out to join Santa and the staff for some Holiday Magic at the Charles Paddock Zoo to enjoy the festivities!
Here at the Zoo it doesn’t matter if you are naughty or nice! Our scheduled gift delivery begins at 10 am and goes until 1 pm. Gifts will be delivered to the animals throughout this timeframe along with activities for the entire family to enjoy throughout the day. New this year is a strolling Magician to engage all ages. The Zoo is dressed up with holiday decorations, so come celebrate the season with us! See how our animals tear into their gifts from the meerkats to the monkeys to the tiger.
Holiday Magic is a great time to come visit the Zoo and the events of the day are included with regular admission!
