There are some exciting things happening at the Bronx Zoo this Summer! Visitors can journey to the Wild Forest and see giant Lego sculptures of tigers, flamingos, gorillas, and other unique wildlife while visiting their real-life counterparts around the zoo.
Your kids can also build your own Lego sculptures in the Construction Zone and view Wildlife Theater performances including the hit musical puppet show, Avenue Zoo. They will be presented with thousands of colorful Lego bricks to choose from that they can use to create their own sculptures of animals.
Every visitor’s own Lego creation will be displayed on bookshelves for everyone to see and enjoy and each child will have the chance to help complete the Mystery Mural display at Dancing Crane Plaza.
Through the Lego Family Challenge, families can join Lego Master Builder Dan Steininger as they compete with other families to see who can build their favorite animal out of Lego bricks within the shortest amount of time. Dan will be on hand to offer building tips and encourage participants to build wild animals such as poison dart frogs, giraffes, and many more!
Dates & Times: July 21, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.; August 11, 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Location: World of Reptiles lawn
Once a month, the Bronx Zoo will also offer Master Builder Events that will engage visitors in the Lego building experience while, at the same time, informing them about the wild animal that is being highlighted.
This exhibit will be open from July 7, 2012 until September 3, 2012. For additional information about this exhibit and other events at the Bronx Zoo this Summer, please visit their website. You can even get more fun facts, information, photos and more by liking the Bronx Zoo on Facebook.
