Roger Williams Park Zoo is offering fathers and their families a "wild" way to celebrate Father’s Day on June 17, with "Day for Dads." The event will feature a host of father friendly activities as well as half-priced admission for all dads, grand-dads, step-dads and honorary dads (when accompanied by a child).
As part of the Father's Day event, the zoo will unveil the name chosen for one of its newest residents, a male giraffe calf born on May 5.
The name will be selected by zoo officials from the more than 5,000 entries submitted in a Giraffe Calf Naming Contest, thus far.
The deadline to enter a name is Friday, June 8 at the zoo's Web site. (www.rogerwilliamszoo.com)
The winner, who submits the selected name, will be invited to participate in the unveiling and will also receive a family membership to the zoo, a framed photo of the calf, and a "Meet the Zookeeper" experience.
Roger Williams Park Zoo is operated and maintained by the Rhode Island Zoological Society and is owned by the City of Providence.
