Santa surprises kids at annual zoo holiday party

Posted: Updated:

Children of all ages enjoyed games and crafts at the annual Riverside Discovery Center's holiday party in Scottsbluff.

Members and volunteers hosted many activities for kids from a reindeer scavenger hunt to making Christmas ornaments.

Santa even took some time out from the North Pole and made a surprise visit. Santa said some of the top toy choices this year were an Easy Bake Oven and game consoles.

Kim Miedema with the Riverside Discovery Center said there's always something happening at the zoo and that she was happy with Saturday's turnout.

"We are open year round. A lot of times people think we're closed during the winter time but winter is a great time to come to the zoo because the animals are much more active. Our tigers love to play in the snow. And so it's a way to keep the zoo in mind for people." Said Miedema. 

Santa concluded his visit by taking pictures and reading to the kids.
