You’re in for a Treat at the Cincinnati Zoo this Fall!
Check out Zoo Boo at the Cincinnati Zoo every weekend this October.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Summer may seem like the best time to take your family to the zoo but think again. This fall, experience all that the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden have to offer from Halloween activities to garden displays and animal exhibits.
Dress up your little ones in their Halloween costumes and head over to the zoo any weekend in October for some family-friendly fun. The zoo encourages visitors to BYOB, bring their own bags that is, as being eco-friendly is something it prides itself on. Walk around the zoo as your kids collect their favorite candies and goodies from the various treat stations that are set up. KIND snacks, Krogers, and Doscher’s Candies are some of the few notable companies that sponsor the stations.
No one will be frightened by these events! The Zoo’s Beauty Shop of Horrors will feature Halloween-themed fingernail painting and temporary tattoos for children. Phil Dalton, Cincinnati’s very own illusionist, will be performing in the Zoo’s Wings of Wonder Theater. Don’t forget to take a ride on the Hogwarts Express Train!
Animal Greetings & Feedings
What’s more fun than feeding a camel or learning from a zoo expert about polar bears while simultaneously watching polar bears? There are special animal encounters, feedings, and information sessions at the Zoo every day of the week. While you’re visiting, be sure to go to the Welcome Center for the list of daily updates and the schedule. Feedings are additional costs, but chats and encounters are free. Of course, make sure you stop by the Hippo Cove to see Fiona, Cincinnati’s famous baby hippopotamus. There is an underwater viewing area in the cove as well as an interactive play area for children where they can learn about these majestic creatures. It’s a win-win for the whole family!
Take a well-deserved break from running from candy station to candy station with your kiddos by walking through the exhibits at the Botanical Garden, which is located all over the zoo. All season long, conifer trees grow in two designated gardens within the park. Stop and smell the pine. When all of this walking has worn you out, head to The Base Camp Cafe, which was rated the “Greenest Restaurant in America” by the Green Restaurant Association. Feel good about your meal while also enjoying an outdoor, seated view of the Zoo’s Africa exhibit if the weather is favorable. If you would prefer perhaps a more filling meal, head to Cincy’s Smokehouse BBQ or Skyline Chili.
