Every time February 14th rolls around, the emphasis is placed on all of those adorable couples out there. If you're looking for someone to enjoy Valentine's Days with in the future, the Edmonton Valley Zoo is ready to help. Not only are they going to share the steamy secrets practiced by other members of the Animal Kingdom to attract mates, but they are also providing an opportunity to practice these freshly learned techniques on the field with a speed dating event organized by Eight Minute Date Edmonton!
You may not end up with a mate of your own, but no matter what happens, this evening will be sure to put a smile on your face. On top of meeting new people and learning about the Animal Kingdom's evolutionary secrets to finding love, there will be upbeat music, delicious food and a friendly environment to help break you out of your shell. Get tickets at eightminutedate.ca.
Once the dating is over, the Zoo is hosting a special event on Family Day as well! Bundle up your family; beat the winter blues and have some Family Day Fun at the Zoo! Stay warm while you make your own hot chocolate, have your face painted or participate in a scavenger hunt. Visit our free photo booth to take home a family memory. Noon-4pm on Monday, February 17.
The Edmonton Valley Zoo is located next to Laurier Park, in Laurier Heights - one of Edmonton's most beautiful neighbourhoods.
