The Santa Barbara Zoo will hold its popular Snow Leopard Festival on December 2 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The festival highlights the highly-endangered cats and offers families a chance to sled and play in snow, ice skate, and meet Santa.
"The Zoo is the only place on the Central Coast where you can sled in view of the Pacific and under a palm tree," says Zoo Director Nancy McToldridge. "And the only place to see these magnificent and endangered snow leopards. We hope everyone has fun, but also learns about the challenges these big cats face in the wild, and how to help with conservation efforts."
Sledding and snow access is $3. Skating is $10 for adults, $7 for children. Tickets for both are sold at the snow area only. There are no advance sales.
