On Friday June 7, 2019, the Edmonton Valley Zoo hosted its 12th annual Dreamnight at the Zoo!
Even though it was cold and rainy, this year’s event saw 940 special guests who braved the weather for this free and magical evening at the Zoo. Invited guests had the opportunity to “Get Closer” with animal encounters, make an amazing animal craft, indulge in delicious complimentary beverages and tasty treats, and enjoy fabulous face painting, magic shows, science experiments, caricatures, live music, and a variety of surprises throughout the night.
At the Dr. Ness Memorial Teddy Bear Hospital, sponsored by the Edmonton Association of Small Animal Veterinarians, children got to choose a stuffed animal to adopt and pretend to be veterinarians by providing medical care to their teddy bears.
It was an incredible experience for both the families that attended the event, as well as the staff and volunteers that helped make the event possible.
