It’s called Adventures in the Tropics: Preschool Family Night and there are two times it will occur; January 28th and February 4th, both from 5:30-7:oo PM. This is probably the priciest event I have ever talked about (given that most of them are free or almost free) – a whole $12 for the family but I still think it’s a good deal. You have a few weeks to save your pennies
You get admission to the Gardens and the program events for that amount, so I think it’s a good deal. We went to one last year, and it’s kind of like a scavenger hunt. There are clues about some animal, then at the end you get to ‘meet’ him or her. It’s a real animal, not some guy in a costume. You do have to RSVP so check the website for all of the details. Here is the link.
I heard recently that Michigan won the national prize for most people leaving the state. I know much of that is job-related; but in case it’s because you just hate winter here I am determined to keep you entertained so you stay put.
