Is the force strong with your little one? Then bring them to grab a photo with their favorite Star Wars Hero or Villain at Zoo Boise this Saturday!

On Saturday, June 9, Zoo Boise transforms into a galaxy far, far away for Galactic Day! With your regular zoo admission, you'll get to enjoy an entire day full of Star Wars fun including a visit from our friends from the 501st Legion Timberline Garrison and Rebel Legion Takodana Base.  If you haven't had a chance to run into their characters at a local Star Wars movie premiere or the Canyon County Kids Expo, you'll be blown away by how accurate their costumes are. They make their costumes and do appearances to share the love of Star Wars across the Treasure Valley. They will NEVER ask for money for a photo-op but should you feel compelled to give them one, they will donate it to one of the charitable cause they're involved with 100% of the time.  It's so cool to see the bad guys and good guys come together to make special experiences for everyone they meet!

The day also includes a comedy performance that takes you through everything you need to know about the growing collection of Star Wars movies with a two actor, 30-minute reenactment and a Star Wars themed Improv Show.

Even the Zoo Boise residents get into it with special Star Wars themed enrichments throughout the day! For a complete schedule of events click HERE!
