Ice cream, ice cream, who wants ice cream?! If you love ice cream like we do, and with the summer heat here, a bowl of your favorite ice cream hits the spot.

If you are looking for ice cream and fun, well. the Ross Park Zoo on Morgan Road, Binghamton is about to tempt you with the 'Coolest Safari Without Even Leaving Binghamton!'

The Ross Park Zoo’s Sundae Safari is back this year (2024) and will be held on Saturday, July 13th from 5 to 8 p.m. The Zoo notes that fantastic frozen fantasies will be available for the public to taste and judge.

More than a half-dozen community agencies will be on hand to tempt your taste buds with their creative ice cream sundaemaking skills. It's kind of a friendly competition to come up with the best sundaes inspired by animals that call the Ross Park Zoo home.

During the Ross Park Zoo Sundae Safari on July 13th, guests will walk from animal habitat to habitat, tasting each creation, before deciding on a winner.

That means a different sundae at each stop along the safari, information about each participating agency, and a chance to see the Ross Park Zoo animals when normally they have no visitors

For ticket prices and more information, visit the Ross Park Zoo website, or call (607) 724-5461. Children 2 and under are free, and ticket numbers are limited.

The Ross Park Zoo notes that securing tickets in advance comes with a magical perk. The first 99 tickets purchased in advance will include a cool, limited-edition Ross Park Zoo souvenir color-changing bowl.
