SO WE STARTED ANIMAL CRACKER JUNIOR AND THIS ON FRIDAY JULY 15TH. WE HAVE THE HONEY BEARS OUT OF CHICAGO. WE ARE SO VERY EXCITED BECAUSE THEY ARE A HIGH ENERGY SONG AND DANCE GROUP. THEN THEY WILL SING AND THEN THEY WILL HAVE A LITTLE DANCE CONTEST FOR THE KIDS AND TEACH THEM SOME MOVES THEY DO AND ONE OF THE HONEY BEAR WAS ALSO ON AMERICAN IDOL SO IT’S KIND OF BEAUTIFUL LITTLE CELEBRITY RISE IN TOWN DOORS OPEN AT 6 AM.

IT’S A FRIDAY NIGHT. SO THE CHILDREN DON’T HAVE TO, YOU KNOW, SEW THEMSELVES TOO EARLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE SATURDAY THE NEXT DAY. SO WE WANT PEOPLE TO TAKE OUT TICKETS ARE REASONABLE. IT’S 10 BUCKS AHEAD AND LESS THAN THREE YEARS IT DEFINITELY SOUNDS LIKE A FUN TIME AND I THINK THE KIDS GET INVOLVED WITH THE DANCE THEMSELVES. IT’S ALWAYS VERY GREAT TO SEE THAT YOU KNOW THEM EXECUTING THEIR MOVEMENTS AND SHOWING THEIR CREATIVITY OF RIGHT, BUT WE KNOW THERE IS ALSO A SPECIAL MESSAGE OR A GOOD MESSAGE BEHIND THIS PERFORMANCE. SO TO HELP FIGHT BULLYING. YEAH, WHAT REALLY REALLY? KIND ABOUT HONEY BEARS IS THAT THEY HAVE THIS MESSAGE BECAUSE YOU KNOW BULLYING IS EVERYWHERE AND WE WANT KIDS TO FEEL THEY WANT TO HAVE FUN. AND WE ALSO WANT THEM TO BE SAFE WHEN THEY COME TO THE ZOO. SO THEIR MESSAGE OF ANTI-HIMIDATION AND JUST BEING KIND TO OTHERS IS REALLY SOMETHING WE LOOK FORWARD TO WITH THE HONEY BEARS, AND WE KNOW THEY WILL DO A GREAT JOB AND WE JUST WANT THE CHILDREN HAVE A GOOD AND SAFE TIME BRING A BAD CHAIR. THE CHILDREN WILL DEFINITELY DANCE AND SING WITH THE HONEY BEARS, BUT YOU KNOW HOW TO BE FOR EACH OTHER AND THIS IS ALSO ONE OF OUR MESSAGES SO THAT EMPATHY FOR EACH OTHER AND FOR WILDLIFE IS A REAL GOOD BLEND FOR US TO HAVE THE PERFECT DOOR HONEY AND I CAN NEVER BE TOO REMINDER TO BE JUST KIND TOWARDS EACH OTHER I THINK. SO IMPORTANT, BUT IT’S STILL HAPPEN THIS FRIDAY. SO I JUST WANT TO GO BACK ON TICKETS.
