The Dallas Zoological Society is thrilled to announce plans for the first annual Kid To Do at the Dallas Zoo “Monkey See Monkey Do.” Following in the footsteps of its big brother Zoo To Do, Kid To Do will feature approximately 20 restaurants serving kidfriendly fare along with fun, festive activities for the whole family. The inaugural Kid To Do will be held Saturday, June 2, 2012 from 6 – 9 p.m. on Cat Green at the Dallas Zoo.

“We are excited to launch Kid To Do at the Dallas Zoo this year, which we hope will re-introduce many local families to the Zoo and engage them for years to come,” said Dallas Zoological Society president and CEO Michael Meadows. “Kid To Do is sure to be the most family-friendly social event of the season, so don’t miss this chance to monkey around with your family, friends, and Dallas’ top chefs!”

Kid To Do 2012 promises a wildly amusing evening for parents and their children with entertainment by award-winning children’s singer and performer Eddie Coker, giraffe feedings in the Giants of the Savanna exhibit, exploration of the new Koala Walkabout exhibit, animal encounters, bounce houses, a DJ and dancing, a private bird show, face painting, and more! Maria Martineau Plankinton and Emily Vafa have teamed up to chair the event, and more than 250 Dallas families have joined the host committee to help plan and produce the event. Honorary Chairs for the event are Jennifer and John Eagle, and Tracy and Kent Rathbun will serve as Honorary Restaurant Chairs.

Tickets for the event are $60 per person, children age 2 and under are free, and sponsorships begin at $500.
