Lions, tigers, bears, breakfast?

That's exactly what's happening at the Racine Zoo in Wisconsin. They offer a super fun program at their zoo called "Breakfast With The Animals". Spoiler alert - it's just as fun as it sounds. Their website says -

Start your morning off right with a fresh, delicious breakfast along the lakefront and a visit with your animal friends at the Racine Zoo!


So what kind of animals do you get to meet for breakfast? Well, in June they had a giraffe presentation. But coming up they have these following dates and animal interactions planned for July, August, and September.

  • July 24 - Featuring eagle presentation
  • August 21 - Featuring orangutans presentation
  • September 18 - Featuring bear presentation

Eggs with an eagle, oranges with an orangutan, brunching with bears. It truly all sounds like such a blast for the entire family. They've got breakfast for both kids and adults so obviously the whole family is invited to breakfast.

The fun doesn't stop there though. They actually have a ton of food/drink events coming up at the zoo. Here's some other fun events coming up ...

  • Roar and Pour (July 28) - Beer tasting event with animal ambassadors
  • Whiskers and Whiskey (August 28) - Whiskey tasting event with information on the zoo's whiskered friends
  • Concerts
  • Car shows

And so much more. From fun with the family to a night out with your besties, the Racine Zoo's calendar is seriously STACKED for 2021. Make sure to get your tickets in advance so you don't miss out on any of the zoo fun.

The next breakfast with animals is coming up on July 24 and you can get tickets here.
