The penguins will march again on Thanksgiving weekend at the Kansas City Zoo.

One of my second favorite zoos to visit is the Kansas City Zoo, its amazing, but not free like the St. Louis Zoo. Every Thanksgiving Weekend the zoo allows their lovable penguins to walk around the zoo for visitors to get an up-close look at these funny birds. The penguin march will happen a few times between November 26 - 28 at 11 am. After the holiday weekend, the marches will happen December 4 through February 25, the Penguin Marches will occur every Saturday and Sunday at 11 am. So you will have plenty of time to visit the zoo and see these delightful birds.

I feel like penguins are that one animal that everyone seems to love, and if you have the chance to get even closer to them then I would take up that offer. The KC Zoo is not free and can be pricy, but once you are in it's a beautiful zoo with several animals to learn about, a sky lift over giraffes and other exotic animals, and even a boat tour. It's a really amazing zoo.

So, if you find yourself in KC now through the end of February, I would make a stop at the KC Zoo, it's worth every penny.
