10 AM to 5 PM
Bridgeland's Oak Meadow Park
Nature Fest 2014 is certain to be a wild adventure with amazing new acts and returning festival favorites!
Back for a third year is Staples Safari Zoo - a menagerie of more than 100 animals! This group, led by Brian Staples, will entertain guests throughout the day with hourly animal shows, including the Primarily Primates performance, which will feature a capuchin monkey who starred with Eddie Murphy in “Dr. Dolittle.” Staples is also bringing some new animals that were recently rescued, including a lion cub named Rory and a baby water buffalo named Jackson. More surprises are sure to delight guests of all ages!
Additional stage performances throughout the day will be presented by Crocodile Encounter, Birds of Prey, Circus Safari and much more.
A few surprises are still in the works, but some of the exciting activities planned include outdoor laser tag, a trackless train, pony and camel rides, a petting zoo, inflatable kids' zone, canoeing and kayaking, face painting, arts and crafts, nature exhibitors, a farmers market and some of Houston’s most popular food trucks to keep hunger growls at bay.
You won't want to miss Bridgeland's attempt to break the world record for most people bird calling! Last year's crowd took a crack at this feat, but Mother Nature had other plans and the effort was was cancelled due to rain. Help us make history this year! More info will be posted to the site as the event draws closer.
Many of the activities are complementary while some will require a small fee. All proceeds will be given to Staples Safari Zoo and Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County, who will be hosting the arts and crafts area.
