Posted: 04/06/2016
Princesses at the ZooZoo Knoxville brings fairy tales to life during a day of Magical Make-Believe, presented by JK Mouse Travel - Tarah Wilson, on Saturday , April 9, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  

This enchanted day will feature Neverland and Company princesses Rapunzel, The Little Mermaid and the Scottish Princess, who will be meeting guests and posing for photos.  The day also includes real magic with performances by Magic Man Entertainment and interactive bubble shows by Pan Walker.  Aspiring princesses can complete their charmed look with complimentary hair painting done by Tennessee School of Beauty during the event.

To make the day even more spellbinding, children ages 12 and under who come to the zoo dressed as a fairy tale character will receive free admission with a paid adult ticket (one free child admission per adult).  

All Magical Make-believe activities included with general zoo admission.  Special thanks to WIVK 107.7 FM and News Talk 98.7 FM for their support of the event.
