Get your bingo daubers ready and walking shoes on as you head to the Milwaukee County Zoo for its celebration of seniors! Get your free tote bag (while supplies last) and then check out more than 30 exhibitors at a senior-themed health and wellness fair in the Peck Welcome Center. Then take a break to enjoy a few games of bingo, with gift-card prizes. Head outdoors and watch for feathered friends, such as peafowl and penguins, as you join the Wisconsin Senior Olympics for a 1-mile walk through the Zoo. Dance to music at the Flamingo Patio and Zoo Terrace stages, sponsored by Humana. There you'll hear the Jeff Winard Band, Jimmy Madritsch & Friends, and The Revomatics play favorites from yesteryear. Those looking for a little more action can partake in pickleball demos on the hour, courtesy of Le Sport Club, near the Safari Train Station. Hungry? Be among the first 2,000 Zoo visitors and get complimentary cookies and ice cream from San Camillo. Box lunches will be available for $6.75.
