Nashville Zoo Cools Off During Ice Day
Join Nashville Zoo on Saturday, July 23 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. for a cool reprieve from the dog days of summer during Ice Day, presented by Southern Icee. The Zoo’s Festival Field will be a flurry of frosty fun with ice treats, water slides and frosty animal enrichment.
With temperatures reaching near triple digits, Ice Day is cool relief for everyone. Ice cream eating contests will take place for kids of all ages. Southern Icee and Coca Cola have partnered together to provide complimentary ice treats for guests throughout the day. Kids can splash down the inflatable water slide, participate in soaking fun games and have their faces painted by artists.
To see some of the Zoo’s animals devour their own brand of popsicle like such as frozen grapes and turkey broth pops, pick up a keeper talk schedule at the front gate. Several animal ice sculptures by Specialty Ice Carvings will also be on display at some exhibits.
Ice Day is included with Zoo admission and membership, but some Festival Field activities have additional fees. For more information, visit nashvillezoo.org.
Ice Day is presented by Southern Icee and supported by Coca Cola and Purity Dairies. Baby+Company will also be hosting a Mom Spot on-site at the event with a diaper changing station and privacy tent for nursing moms.
