On Sunday, December 4, 2011 Senator Lou Correa hosted his 11th Annual Zoo event at Prentice Park Zoo in Santa Ana. Local residents and families enjoyed one day’s free admission to the zoo, visiting the various exhibits and attractions that the zoo has to offer including a wide array of primate exhibits, an Amazon aviary featuring exotic birds, a jaguar maze for kids, and much more.

The atmosphere was friendly as locals took advantage of the chance to visit the newly renovated “Tierra de las Pampas” exhibit. The Zoo's anteaters were a highlight for many of the visitors who crowded around the area hoping to catch a glimpse of the strange looking creatures. In addition, the crowd was treated to free food and refreshments, games, performances, and a raffle. A host of local youth organizations provided entertainment. The crowds eagerly looked on as acrobatic martial arts demonstrations impressed people of all ages.

Sunday’s event was also an opportunity for Senator Correa and his staff to collect canned food and unwrapped children’s toys to be given to needy families during the holidays. Other local non-profit organizations distributed flyers, informational packets, and books to the visitors as they waited in line for their turn to enter the zoo.

It was a beautiful Southern California day at the park.

Below is a video of the event.
