Join Dora the Explorer for a Day of Adventure at Knoxville Zoo

Posted: 09/11/2009
Join Dora the Explorer, everyone's favorite seven-year-old adventurer, for an exciting day at Knoxville Zoo on Sunday, September 20 from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Dora the Explorer, straight from her popular Nickelodeon show, will be at the zoo meeting her fans-and don't forget your camera, because she'll be posing for photos, too! After stopping by to say "Hola" to Dora, be sure to visit los animales de Knoxville Zoo and Wee Play Zoo and The Clayton Family Kids Cove are fun places to play the day away, too!

Dora is the star of Dora the Explorer, an animated television starring the seven-year-old Latina and her friends. As Dora explores her world, her pre-school viewer are encouraged to respond to Dora and participate in her adventure with physical activity. Along the way, kids learn Spanish words and phrases as well as math skills, music, and physical coordination.The show teaches children how to observe situations and solve problems, and have fun as they do!

This special meet and greet with Dora the Explorer is included with general zoo admission.

Special thanks to Comcast and Domino's Pizza for making Dora's visit possible. Stop by the Plaza Pavilion for special coupon offers from Domino's.
