The Akron Zoo will be highlighting its penguins tin January during a new event, Penguin Palooza. Penguin Palooza will run every Saturday and Sunday in January from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to feed the zoo's penguins for $3, enjoy free hot chocolate and a different make-and-take penguin craft every weekend.
The zoo is home to 17 endangered Humboldt penguins, and although the penguins are more mild temperate penguins from South America, they are in their exhibit year round as the zoo keeps the water temperature at 60 degrees for them.
Winter hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information visit www.akronzoo.org or call 330-375-2550.
