Visiting the Henry Vilas Zoo


MADISON (WKOW)-- The Henry Vilas Zoo is the place to be this Father's Day. Not only can you see tons of animals like the beautiful and majestic Rhinos featured on Wake Up Wisconsin Thursday morning, but you can also spend time with the whole family in a safe and fun atmosphere.

On Sunday, June 19, the zoo is hosting a Father's Day Barbeque. It's complete with savory summer food and a Tool Workshop with Home Depot. Dads and kids can enjoy a picnic style lunch complete with pulled barbecue pork sandwiches, bratwurst, hot dogs and pasta salad, just to name a few dishes. At 1:00 p.m. the Home Depot Tool Workshop honors all of Dad's hard work by teaching kids what it takes to fix, hammer, nail, and build. Space is limited though, so get your tickets early. They cost $25.00 and you can get them by contacting Suzy Reynolds at
