Norristown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2015 -- At the Elmwood Park Zoo, the animals aren't the only ones who can celebrate their birthday in the park; children can celebrate at the refuge as well! The animal haven offers birthday packages that are available all year around. Having a birthday at the zoo provides kids with an educational experience complete with delicious food, fun activities and socializing.

The staff goes above and beyond to make sure the birthday party is special with their excellent customer service and attention to detail. Birthday party packages are $450 during the peak season, from April to October, and $350 during the off season, from November to March. Members of the Elmwood Park Zoo receive a 10% discount off of the birthday party rates. The birthday party package includes one-hour rental of designated space for celebrating, themed paper products, three large pizzas, beverages, a live animal encounter (if taking place on a weekend), bison or giraffe feeding, party favor bags and a visit to the petting barn.
The package also includes the admission of up to 24 guests, not including the birthday child, as well as a piñata or free animal feeding pass for the birthday child.
