Noon-4pm • Sept. 21, 2014
Kick off National Hispanic Heritage Month with a trip to the Zoo for the annual Hispanic Heritage Fiesta presented in partnership with La Voz de Indiana! Celebrate the culture and traditions of Latin America through a variety of special afternoon activities fit for the whole family!
National Hispanic Heritage Month officially runs Sept. 15 through Oct. 15 each year to celebrate Latin culture during the independence period for the Latin American countries of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Hispanic Heritage Fiesta is a great enhance to a Zoo visit with extra festivities that celebrate this great culture with bright decorations, family activities, Latin-inspired food and more!
See rain on the radar? Don't worry! Inclement weather simply moves the festivities inside the Zoo's Party Pavilion. Nothing can stop the fiesta fun!
Hispanic Heritage Fiesta is included with regular Zoo admission and free for members. Purchase discount tickets in advance weekdays at La Voz de Indiana ($12.75 adults, $8.75 youth).
