TORONTO ZOO IS THE PLACE TO BE THIS
THANKSGIVING WEEKEND


GIANT PANDA CUB BIRTHDAY FUN!

With crisp fall air, vibrant colours and fun for all ages, the Toronto Zoo is the place to be this Thanksgiving Weekend. The Zoo site is gorgeous in the fall so why not pick up a hot drink from our on-site Tim Hortons, stroll throughout the scenic site to meet animals from around the world, take in a Keeper Talk and more!

Plus, join us in celebrating a great milestone - the first birthday for Canada's only pair of giant panda cubs, Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue! Party festivities will include panda-themed activities, festive photo opportunities, panda give-aways, interpretive stations and more. Our panda mascots will also be on hand for visits and photos, so be sure to bring your camera! Celebrate everything you are thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend at the Zoo, including the Giant Panda Cubs' first birthday!
