Fall is certainly one of the most flavorful times of the year. There are many flavors that are unique to the autumn season. However, the most iconic and most popular of those fall flavors is pumpkin. We use it in our pies. We use it in our coffee. The pumpkin is not only a symbol of Halloween, but also of Thanksgiving as well. It turns out that we aren’t the only fans of pumpkins. Several members of the animal kingdom are also a big fan of the gourd as well. A great place to discover these animals and their love of pumpkins is at the Santa Barbara Zoo. In fact, the Santa Barbara Zoo will host an Animal Pumpkin Smash on Thanksgiving.
If you do decide to visit the zoo on Thanksgiving Day, you will be in for a special treat. Many of the animals at the zoo will be given their own pumpkins to play with. From elephants to gorillas, you will see how many residents at the Santa Barbara Zoo interact with one of the season’s most iconic foods.
Have your family spend some time with the Santa Barbara Zoo family by participating in the Animal Pumpkin Smash this Thanksgiving. It’s sure to be a “smash” hit!
