Prepared for Father’s Day? Audubon Zoo has a great event this weekend called the Southern Fried Swamp Fest. It’s a festival designed to feature traditional and non-traditional fried foods along with Cajun music. All of this will take place in the Swamp Exhibit, and even more music will happen on the Capital One stage. This event is especially great for Dads because they get in for FREE! You can get your tickets online or at the front gate to come out and enjoy some of the best fried food items, not to mention regular Zoo concessions.
Speaking of bunches of swamp themed fun, after the Fried Swamp Fest you and your Dad can travel on down to Airboat Adventures and see where some of that food comes from! Like crawfish pies, or alligator sausage on a stick? You can have those and much more at the festival and afterwards take a great boat tour and get a taste of where that awesome food comes from. Dad will never forget this weekend if you one, two punch him with this exciting combination of celebration! Show your father what a real Father’s Day is by bringing him to a festival where he can eat to his heart’s content, while getting in free and then bringing him on an exciting swamp tour with Airboat Adventures.
Don’t be afraid to bring your whole family, it is the Zoo after all! Food aside, there is tons of entertainment planned and there is a full schedule online. Airboat Adventures also has their scheduled posted online so you can plan out your whole Father’s Day weekend and make sure it’s everything you want it to be.
Airboat Adventures has boats to fit all sizes of groups, so if you bring a large one to the festival, don’t think you can’t bring them to the swamp! Education and sights abound, these tours have everything you could ever want when it comes to swamp adventures. So call or get online and plan out all the weekend! Choose what foods you’ll want to eat, the music you want to hear, and of course which swamp tour time you’ll be interested in. It is sure to be an excellent weekend where your father can be celebrated and you and yours can have a great time!
