Meet Dora and Diego at Party for the Planet

Children’s favorites Dora and Diego and two eager troops of egg-hunting gorillas will headline as featured attractions at Party for the Planet presented by Georgia Natural Gas and Downey Trees on Saturday, April 23 at Zoo Atlanta.

The popular characters from the world-famous animated series Dora the Explorer appear live for exclusive meet-and-greets throughout the event. Additional highlights will include green exhibitors, arts and crafts, and an earthworm dig during a dynamic day of family Earth Day fun.

Later that afternoon, it’s time for ready-set-go as western lowland gorillas collect treats during the Zoo’s annual gorilla egg hunt. In what has become a favorite spring tradition in Atlanta, the gentle giants will hunt for hidden Jell-O eggs at 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. in The Ford African Rain Forest.

Party for the Planet is free for Zoo Members and children under 3; free with general admission. Visit zooatlanta.org for tickets and details.
