Meet your favorite Star Wars characters without making a trip to a galaxy far, far away. Visitors are encouraged to bring their cameras to Star Wars Day and pose for free photos with costumed characters from 11 am to 4 pm. Visitors will learn how animal adaptations and behaviors in our galaxy relate to the creatures from the Star Wars universe through wildlife stage shows, crafts and other activities. Visitors will also be able to enjoy Star Wars-themed concession items in Kampala Cafe, a ride on the Conservation Carousel to Star Wars music and face painting. The animals will join in on the fun as they receive special Star Wars-themed enrichment items throughout the day.
