Pumpkin Fun at the Central Park Zoo October 25, 2020

 One of the best things about this time of year are pumpkins. I normally run a public before hours photo session at the Central Park Zoo featuring pumpkin enrichment for our animals. Like most everything else the session was cancelled this year due to COVID19. I decided to go ahead with the enrichment and thanks to CPZ’s amazing staff we pulled it off. We dismissed with carving and just gave the animals whole pumpkins. It was fun, colorful and enriching for them, the staff and me. If you are a pumpkin nut like me – here’s a trip down memory lane from some of the other pumpkinpalooza events. 2019’s Hello Gourd-geous2018’s Pumpkinfest2017’s Pumpkin’s a Plenty –  2016’s Pumpkinpalooza. There’s more – but you get the idea. Here’s hoping that next year we are back to ‘normal’ times and we can have a pumpkin photo session again. Please stay safe, wear a mask and social distance. Enjoy the pumpkins.

Thank you again for such fun pictures. I envy you for your photographic skills of capturing such moments with the animals. I do appreciate your sharing them with us. Happy Halloween.

They seem plenty happy even without carvings! Beautiful captures! And did you know what the pumpkins said at happy hour? Let’s get smashed! 🙂
