Join Dora the Explorer, everyone’s favorite seven-year-old
adventurer, for an exciting day at Knoxville Zoo on Sunday, September 20 from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00
Dora the Explorer, straight from her popular
Nickelodeon show, will be at the zoo meeting her
fans-and don’t forget your camera, because she’ll be
posing for photos, too! After stopping by to say
“Hola” to Dora, be sure to visit los animales de
Knoxville Zoo and Wee Play Zoo and The Clayton
Family Kids Cove are fun places to play the day
Dora is the star of Dora the Explorer, an animated
television starring the seven-year-old Latina and her
friends. As Dora explores her world, her pre-school
viewer are encouraged to respond to Dora and participate in her adventure with physical activity. Along
the way, kids learn Spanish words and phrases as well as math skills, music, and physical coordination.
The show teaches children how to observe situations and solve problems, and have fun as they do!
This special meet and greet with Dora the Explorer is included with general zoo admission.

Pavilion for special coupon offers from Domino’s.
