Bronx Zoo’s Newest Adventure..Dinosaur Safari: The Safari Street Team Hits The Pavement On 6/20
Are dinosaurs really extinct? They won’t be tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled for spotting a very unusual and unique fashion trend to hit the streets of Manhattan, Hoboken and Brooklyn on Thursday, June 20th.
There will be roughly 50 people on the streets in those areas that are conspicuously wearing an accessory that distinctively ties into the Bronx Zoo’s newest adventure..Dinosaur Safari. If possible, try and tailor your day to get behind this very special event.
The members of the Bronx Zoo’s Safari street team, as they are called, will be handing out little cards that will give you and your family the ability to experience all of the Bronx Zoo’s greatest and latest attractions at a discount of 20% off of your Total Experience tickets. This includes their newest attraction the Dinosaur Safari.
I know me and my family are eager to see this event and will share photos here on my blog at a later date. If you happen to be on the streets and spot a dino tail tomorrow, hit @theBronxZoo on Instagram with the hashtag #dinotail and share this awesome experience with your family and friends, and the entire world!
The Dinosaur Safari street team members will be out and about between the hours of 12 noon – 6 pm EST. For a full list of locations that will give you a head’s up to where the dino team will be..check below at the very bottom of this post. And for a little peek at exactly what you’ll be on the look out for, check out this short You Tube video below. It is quite amusing.
Remember friends, if you do happen to spot a dino please TwitPic or Instagram a photo of the dinosaur tail people you spot. For example: ”Just saw a Bronx Zoo Dino Tail getting lunch at Whole Foods.” Or if you want you can give real-time updates via Twitter if you spot one, with the same type of info. as the example shown above. Use hashtags #dinotail #bronxzoo #columbuscircle. (The last tag would obviously be altered to the location you spot the dino in, naturally.)
Go out scouting tomorrow my Tri-State area compadres. Also, be sure and get your family membership for the Bronx Zoo today and have a summer full of fun adventures just like this one. Never miss a beat. (I know we won’t 😀 .)
Happy Dino Hunting!!
