The Long Island Game Farm – Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo celebrated its final weekend of 2015 with its first-ever Pirates and Princesses Treasure Hunt on Sunday, October 11. Hundreds children of all ages donned their best ball gowns and swashbuckling attire to participate in an expedition around the zoo. Prizes were awarded to all participants, who also had a chance to take pictures with a real-life pirate and princess.
In honor of the high seas adventure theme, The Priceless Parrot Rescue Organization was in attendance to host a “take a pic with a parrot” booth. The photo opportunity exhibit raised donations to support the Priceless Parrot’s rescue efforts. The event also supported the Long Island Butterfly Effect Project by encouraging all event attendees to bring with them a new or used children’s book(s), appropriate for grades one to seven. Additionally, the Game Farm offered all Columbus Day Weekend visitors an increased coupon rate as well as the chance to get up-close and personal with the zoo’s Bearded Dragons.
“The Pirates and Princesses Treasure Hunt was the perfect way to end our 2015 season,” says Melinda Novak, Co-Owner/Vice President, Long Island Game Farm — Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo. “The weather was perfect and all of the families seemed to have a lot of fun. We’re looking forward to hosting the event again next Fall, and we’re excited to reopen in the Spring with even more fun events.”
