Your kids are going to want to go to Brookfield zoo for about a million reasons this summer and the newest reason is Paw Patrol.

Parents, you have two options when it comes to this news. Tell your kids right away and get them to do chores to earn a trip to Paw Patrol at Brookfield Zoo or, don't tell them at all and make it an awesome big surprise.

The Brookfield Zoo is a pretty great one.

Most of my childhood experiences were some sort of school field trip, but as an adult I still like to go with my nieces and nephews.

One of those nephews will be pretty excited to hear that Paw Patrol is taking over the zoo during Summer Sundays in August.

August 12 to be exact.

According to the event Facebook page:

Join us for a meet and greet with your favorite PAW Patrol characters, Chase and Marshall! Bring your camera to get your photo taken with these popular characters!

* Meet and Greet is first come, first served. Characters will be out for 40 minutes every hour, on the hour. Photos must be taken with your own cameras/devices.

So, it's probably gonna be pretty busy that Sunday, but so worth it when your little ones get to hang with Chase and Marshall.

Catch Midday Michelle on 97 ZOK from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
