May 31
Health & Safety Safari
Presented by Becker Law Office

10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The chance of rain and low clouds looming over the Louisville Zoo did not keep thousands of people from coming out to enjoy the Health and Safety Safari presented by Becker Law Office.  The Health and Safety Safari allowed children to make their way through the Zoo collecting stamps on their Safari passport at designated locations and learning health and safety tips along the way.


The special guest of the day was Iron Man and the children lined up to shake his hand, get his autograph and have a chance to have their picture taken with him. Iron Man, a marvel comic book character, recently stared in a motion picture and was a big hit.

Over 6,700 people braved the heat and humidity to learn tips from First Aid to bike safety and so much more.  Exhibitors passed out flyers, gave away prizes, and even promoted healthy eating with bananas and oranges.  Becker Law Office gave away passport bookmarks at their Zoo plaza booth along with Safety Activity Coloring Books and Crayons for the kids.  A sweepstakes giveaway to win a plush polar bear toy was provided by Becker Law Office.  Zoo visitors who filled up their passport with stamps received a free Top Trumps Wildlife Trading Card and a free DVD rental from RedBox as they exited the Zoo.
