CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN ZOO FIXES TEDDY BEAR “BOO-BOOs” THIS SATURDAY!

– Teddy Bear Day offers $10 discount on a child’s admission when accompanied by a stuffed animal –

 
August 18, 2016, Colorado Springs, CO – Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s 28th annual Teddy Bear Day is this Saturday, August 20 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Kids age 3 to 11 who are accompanied by a teddy bear, or other stuffed friend, get into the Zoo for just $9.75 (a $10 savings). As always, it pays to be a member – there’s no charge for members to get into Teddy Bear Day. Children 2 and under are just 75¢.

During Teddy Bear Day, children and their parents can visit the Teddy Bear Clinic located at Lodge at Moose Lake; pediatric experts and volunteers from Children’s Hospital Colorado will be on hand to provide x-rays and check-ups to stuffed animals. During the check-up, each bear will get a health evaluation and “medical” procedures will be administered to injured stuffed animals. The clinic is a great way for kids to familiarize themselves with the health care community and what they can expect if they need to visit a doctor, hospital or dentist.

There will be lots of additional activities for kids at Lodge at Moose Lake, including face painting, crafts and the opportunity to meet some of the Zoo’s hands-on outreach animals. Plus, guests can also watch animal-care demonstrations and keeper talks throughout the day.
