This year it will be on Saturday, Jan. 21 from 1 - 3:30 p.m. Events in the visitor center include face-painting, story telling, crafts, and a piece of birthday cake. Watch Maggie open her edible birthday gift at 3:30 pm. Events in the Visitor Center are free, but regular entrance fees apply to enter the zoo to see Maggie - 6 and under free, 7- 12 years $3, 13 years and up $5.
