Exciting things continue to happen at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville. Last month, they welcomed two new baby lion cubs and for the first time since 2015, tigers could be found on exhibit in Broome County.

You've heard Traci talk about her drive from the country into work every day. She makes the trip in the middle of the night and almost every week, she'll have an encounter with an animal near the road.

However, she doesn't run into the same problem on her way home because the animal activity is different. Animal Adventure knows that as well, so they are bringing back their "wildly" popular event called "Park After Dark." Hmm, that meant something else to me when I was young.

Park After Dark

It's a chance to witness the change in their behavior as the sun goes down during that magical time of day, they call the "Golden Hour." It's happening this Saturday, August 7th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and it's your opportunity to see how things are different than your typical daytime visit.

Animal Adventure Park Drive-Thru The Zoo

Next Sunday, August 15th, Animal Adventure is having their final Drive-Thru The Zoo for the season. One thing that they found out last year during the COVID-19 pandemic was that people liked the chance to drive through the zoo.

Some people liked it because they could stay in the comfort of their vehicle and other patrons liked it because they weren't able to go through the zoo in the standard walk through the zoo way.

They call it the "Mission of Inclusion" as they want to be able to include everyone and it goes from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on August 15th. Animal Adventure Park is located at 85 Martin Hill Road in Harpursville and is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Speaking of the drive-thru, check out the Must-Drive eoads in every state below. New York surprised me a little.
