An up-close look at exotic wildlife, including a spider monkey, emu and birds of prey, will be featured during a Drive Thru Zoo in September at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds & Event Center in Lynden.
Guests will slowly drive through the Wildlife of the World exhibit at the fairgrounds, 1775 Front St., while enjoying a narrated guide right through their car’s radio. Other featured animals include a sloth, wallaby, parrots and many more. Live demonstrations will also occur at various times. The estimated drive-through time is 30-45 minutes.
Wildlife of the World will be presented from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. during two weekends: Sept. 11-13 and 18-20. Tickets will be sold in two-hour blocks for only $10 per vehicle (limit one person per seatbelt), available starting Wednesday, Aug. 26 at www.nwwafair.com. Limited standby admission will be available each day for $15 per vehicle.
“Wildlife of the World is fun, educational and affordable for the entire family,” said CEO Chris Pickering. “It’s also the rare event that can be safely offered during the COVID-19 pandemic because everyone stays in their vehicles.”
Co-presenting sponsors are Haggen Food & Pharmacy, CHS Northwest and KAFE 104.1FM.
