Our Black Friday Deal? ‘Drop and Shop’ at Como!

A Program For Kids, But Designed For Parents

Kids play at Como while parents play Santa

This holiday season Como Park Zoo & Conservatory is offering parents a way to check things off their holiday to-do list while their little elves are busy having fun at Como. Como is offering an educational, fun-filled experience that will occupy the little ones, giving parents the opportunity to take care of their holiday shopping….or perhaps simply go on a date!

Como’s “Drop & Shop” program will be available on Friday, November 28 (Black Friday) and Saturday, December 13th. During these 4.5 hour programs, kids will tackle a scavenger hunt through the Zoo and Conservatory, meet special animal visitors, and participate in games, crafts, and other wild zoo-themed fun.
