When you attend the zoo, you can see and learn so much. Often, you learn about animal behaviors and the habitats they live in. If you attend the OC Zoo this summer, you’ll be able to see some of your favorite creatures up close while hanging out with Southern California’s finest stormtroopers!

What could be better than amazing animals and Star Wars? The animals will receive enrichment activities that are themed to the beloved series and even special meet and greets with the animals! There will also be themed crafts and activities for the younger guests.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Star Wars day without some characters! The 501st Legion Southern California Garrison will be in attendance to make the event truly out of this world. There will be numerous appearances by characters and troopers, you really never know who may show up!

The 501st Legion is full of “bad guys doing good.” They attend numerous charity events, bringing Star Wars everywhere they go. We have been lucky enough to have members of the Garrison attend our annual ROCK4CHOC event, where we have seen everyone from General Leia to Palpatine himself. The best thing about fandom is being able to share the love and the garrison definitely recognizes that! Take a look at the fun we had with the 501st Legion at the 2018 ROCK4CHOC below!

If you are in the area this Summer, be sure to head to the OC Zoo on June 22! It will definitely be an event not to miss. Whether you love animals, Star Wars, or both, it will be a memorable event for everyone in your group. Be sure to check here for more information about tickets and hours!
