Noah's Landing plans special Labor Day weekend celebration

Posted August 29, 2011

Noah's Landing, the non-profit children's zoo in Coats, will host its annual Blue & 'Cue at the Zoo on Labor Day weekend.

This is one of a handful of special events where the zoo opens its doors on both a Saturday and Sunday and visitors are not required to go on a guided tour. This makes especially great for younger kids.

Families will be able to wander around the zoo and take part in special activities including a "Handimal" station where kids can turn handprints into artwork. There will be bluegrass music and barbecue plates on sale from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Kids will get to feed carrots to the zebra and donkeys, interact with "Wally" the alligator and see a variety of other animals.

It's 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $8 per person. Barbecue plates, including tea or lemonade, are $8.

Noah's Landing is at the crossroads of Johnston and Harnett counties about an hour from the Triangle. Click here for details.

    My family lives near Coats. We have been to Noah's Landing several times. Lots of unusual animals you don't typically see anywhere. Very cool place.

    I was hoping to take the kids this weekend. Has anyone been to this zoo before? If so, how was it.
    We have a family of four. Total cost would be $32.00. "Looks like a fun place"
