Mesker Park Zoo

On Evansville's west side sits Mesker Park Zoo. Ever since I was a kid I can remember my excitement about going to the zoo and seeing all of the animals.   There's something super special about seeing animals at the zoo that I would normally never have the chance to see in person.   Now that I have a son of my own, I love getting to share my love of animals with him, by taking him to the zoo.    Now you can experience the zoo in a Christmassy setting when the jolly man in red comes to breakfast at the zoo!

Mesker Park Zoo's Breakfast with Santa

This is definitely the perfect event for kids who love animals and Santa! There are a few different sessions available for Breakfast with Santa:

  • December 3rd – 8:15a – 9:45a & 10:15a-11:45a

  • December 4th – 8:15a – 9:45a & 10:15a-11:45a

  • December 10th – 8:15a – 9:45a & 10:15a-11:45a


Here is what Mesker Park Zoo had to say about the event:

ALL ABOARD! You’ll be transported to the North Pole where delicious breakfast options will be available and you’ll be joined by Santa himself! Children will receive sweet treats and a holiday craft.

Six Sessions are available and all sessions are approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Each session is identical in programming and activities. You must attend the session for which you purchase tickets as space is limited. The event will be held indoors and is held rain or shine. Please come prepared. Your ticket does include zoo admission for the entire day once your session has ended.

Sensory Friendly Breakfast with Santa

Mesker Park Zoo is also adding in two sessions for a sensory-friendly Breakfast with Santa. I love that they are making sure this is accessible to all children.   The sensory-friendly Breakfast with Santa will take place on December 11th.

  • December 11th – 8:15a – 9:45a
  • December 11th – 10:15a-11:45a
