Special Event

Featured Creatures Weekend

June 15th & 16th, 2024
9:30am - 4:30pm

Featured Creatures Weekend will showcase the animals of Flamingo Gardens and others in our surroundings.  Enjoy special Meet & Greets and Animal Talks with some of Flamingo Gardens’ resident Animal Ambassadors and some additional reptilian guests.  On Sunday, Dads enter FREE for Father’s Day with any paid admission!*  

Guests can also explore Dinosaurs Around the World; The Great Outdoors, a captivating outdoor exhibit featuring 13 animatronic dinosaurs that come to life with incredibly realistic sound and lifelike movements. Travel back to the time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and Antarctica was green! Grab your prehistoric passport and discover how land bridges, volcanic activity, and plate tectonics allowed dinosaurs such as T. rex, Spinosaurus, Hadrosaur, and more to disperse all over the globe, giving each of today’s continents its own unique selection of these giant reptiles.
