Reasons for thanks at Zoo Atlanta
Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Join Santa when the holiday season begins Thanksgiving weekend 
 
Looking for reasons for thanks this holiday season? Start with 216 mammals, 607 birds, 350 reptiles, 106 amphibians, 41 invertebrates, and a gorgeous late fall forecast. The gates are wide open Thanksgiving weekend – even for a very special guest not known to use traditional entry points. 
 
Santa makes his annual first stop in the home of animals from around the world at Cookies with Santa on Saturday, November 24. Bring the little ones for a personal visit and professional photo, and kick off the season with cookies, hot chocolate, costume characters, festive crafts and family holiday cheer. 
 
Advance reservations to Cookies with Santa are $10 for Zoo Atlanta Members; $15 for non-Members. Online ticket sales end Friday, November 23 at 11 p.m. on www.zooatlanta.org. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event at $13 for Members; $18 for non-Members. 
 
Tickets do not include general admission; non-Members must purchase general admission to attend. Tickets are required for all attendees, including children under 3.
