Red Shoe at the Zoo 2022 1300x531px temp2

Red Shoe at the Zoo
October 7th, Saturday 12pm-3pm

Join Ronald McDonald House Charities of Norfolk for a wildly fun day at the Zoo! Ticket prices include all day admission to the Zoo, so bring your family and friends and enjoy more than 700 animals! The Zoo opens daily at 9:30 a.m. Join us at the Pavilion starting at noon. Have lunch at one of three food trucks serving pizza, tacos, or BBQ. Mom and dad can enjoy wine or beer and children can grab water or soft drinks.


Outdoor games will be in the grassy area next to the Pavilion. You can play corn hole, Jenga, or Connect Four. We will have a DJ on site to play all your favorites! Don’t forget to wear your red shoes to show your support for the House.


We will have a Costume Contest for children aged 12 and under. The child must attend the event, parents must sign a Waiver and Release so we can post the pictures on Facebook. Pictures will be taken of each child in costume and posted after the event. The costume with the most likes will win a gift certificate.

We will have a Silent Auction with fabulous items. The Auction will open on October 2, 2023. We will use a Text2Bid system so don’t forget to include your phone number so we can text you the Key Word and short code.

Have your children make get-well cards for the children in the Hospital. Visit the card-making station at the Pavilion.


The BEST thing about the event is you are helping to keep families together and close to the care they need when they have a sick child.
