Eat’n Park Family Week Recap

Hello friends! It’s Smiley here, and I hope you are keeping dry in this rainy weather! Despite the bad weather over the past few days, my team and I had a nice, sunny weekend to conclude Eat’n Park Family Week at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. All throughout the weekend, Zoo guests stopped by our tent to celebrate my birthday, play games, and of course, eat Smiley Cookies!

Eat'n Park Family Week
Our festivities started on the Fourth of July. My team set up at the entrance of the Zoo to greet guests on Independence Day, and we celebrated with patriotic temporary tattoos and an abundance of cookies. I also enjoyed a dance party and photo opportunities with the Zoo’s Shark mascot!

On Saturday, we helped the Zoo celebrate Underwater Adventure Day. This meant that I got to hang out with my Shark friend again at the PPG Aquarium and the Eat’n Park Beach Party, which was a lot of fun. I saw the live sharks from the underwater tunnel, and I even posed for pictures next to a giant polar bear statue!

Finally, on Sunday, we arrived at the Zoo to give guests Smiley Cookies for the road. We had fans from near and far stop by for cookies, ranging from Zoo employees to one family that was visiting all the way from Canada! We even had guests drive by our tent for curbside cookie distribution. Overall, we had a great time celebrating Eat’n Park Family Week with our fans at the Zoo!
